Greek provisions in Brooklyn
- Bob Dively
Gack! I just had a salad with some supermarket feta
that was more like an industrial sealant than the
actual item. Whoever made that garbage and then
decided to label it as feta should be flogged. Can
somebody point me towards a place reasonably near to
Park Slope and decently provisioned with Greek food?
I used to live in Astoria so I know good places up
there, but I'm thinking of a place that I could make a
run to that wouldn't involve the BQE. My taste buds
thank you in advance.
bob--consider joining the food coop on union street. In
addition to unbelievably good and reasonable produce,
they have some hard-to-find items that are...uh....hard
to find in the rest of the nabe. Greek feta might very
well be one of them.
Another choice is to head over to Sahadi or the other
middle eastern stores on atlantic...they'll surely have
some good feta.
re: Jim Leff
For feta, you'll do better at Sahadi's than the coop.
You could also try International Taste on 7th bet
1st and Garfield (imported cheese & other stuff like
capers and olives, bulk spices, large selection of
beers, esp English and Belgian) although it's sort of
pricey. But for anything else, including nice organic
produce (anything you want organic, really), bulk
coffee, flour, tea, vitamins & other dry goods, the
coop is pretty good, and nobody's prices are better. A
damn sight better than Key Food, that's for sure.
