New York's Great Food Neighborhoods: Park Slope

Visit Some of Brooklyn's Best Food Merchants

This tree-lined neighborhood stretches from Flatbush Avenue to 17th Street, sloping from Prospect  Park to 4th Avenue (thus its name).  With 24 blocks of landmarked buildings, brownstones and shops, Park Slope abuts Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, and Sunset Park.  Young professionals, many moving from Manhattan, have been making the area known more for lifestyle than any ethnic flavor.  If you have any doubt about that, try to get through stroller gridlock on busy 7th Avenue on a Saturday afternoon.  This inflow of hipsters, singles, young couples and families has also meant that top quality resources and services -- including food stores -- are in demand.

It's true that a few resources are still thin or missing.  There's no butcher, but Cobble Hill's legendary Staubitz Market is nearby.  Its one fish monger, Park Slope Seafood, is good but with demand, has the potential to be even better.  Plus Union Market and the excellent Saturday Greenmarket fill much of any meat and fish gaps.  

Today Park Slope is one of New York's great food neighborhoods.  Here are some of the best but check our database for more top-quality merchants.

Neighborhoods like Park Slope have merchants this good because the people who live there support them.  If you live in Park Slope, please bring them your business.  If you live elsewhere, some Saturday get on the F train with your string bag and go visit.  Like the Michelin travel guides say -- it's worth a journey.
