187 Atlantic Ave.
between Clinton/Court Sts.
A Middle-Eastern market selling a large and diverse selection of cheeses, dried fruits and nuts, bread, spices, legumes, sweets and delicacies and grocery items.
The selection of ingredients and delicacies is superb and the prices are excellent. This is a place to really explore the differences in feta cheeses, stock up on spices and nuts, and taste the freshest pita breads. Also great to buy here: olives, olive oil, dried beans, grains and rice, and coffee and tea.
What to avoid:
It can be a challenge to shop on Saturdays when all the weekend shoppers are there because the store is closed on Sundays.
What to know:
Be prepared to carry home more than you thought you'd buy because this is the kind of place you go off the shopping list. Since the store is also a wholesaler, the prices are excellent, plus you can buy in large quantities, making the trip to Atlantic Avenue really worth it.
