Handcrafted in Brooklyn

Brooklyn has become an incubator for a culinary-minded entrepreneurs – from Mast Brothers to Marlow & Sons to McClure’s Pickles – creating products with typefaces and flavors that are simultaneously retro and contemporary. The borough is blessed with a tremendous sense of community with stores like By Brooklyn in Carroll Gardens (which only sells products made in Kings County), a new food incubator at community and class center Third Ward, magazines like Edible Brooklyn and organizations like The Brooklyn Food Coalition trying to ensure that this new movement is more than just a phase.
