I'm going to be in Brooklyn - Park Slope/Boerum Hill for a day next week and like to bring home an artisanal treat. I won't have refridgeration so it'll need to be preserved or fermented in some way. Animal products are good but I'm open. Any suggestions?
A number of specialty store in Park Slope (such as Union Market and Blue Apron) will have a number of jarred and packaged Brooklyn specialty items such as McClure's Pickles and Mustards. You'll also find them in the Brooklyn Flea http://www.brooklynflea.com/about/ which could be very interesting on its own.
ETA: McClure's website did not list Blue Apron or Union Market as a retail outlet, but you should be able to find other Brooklyn items there anyway.
ETA: noted that you will only be here for one day and the Brooklyn Flea is only open on the weekend.

It you a cheese or some charcuterie, Blue Apron and Brooklyn Larder would be a couple of choices as woud M&S on Fifith Ave and several other places in Carroll Gardens (the last group for Italian sausages and other specialties. Bierkraft on 6th Ave or Prospect Wine Shop on 7th Ave for other "fermented" specialties.
