BROOKLYNREPORTER: Iconic Sahadi’s grocery store headed to Industry City

A popular and longtime favorite Brooklyn specialty grocery story is coming to Sunset Park.

Family owned Sahadi’s, a Brooklyn fixture that has had a location on Atlantic Avenue since 1948, will be opening up a second location in the ever-growing Industry City.

The market, which is a James Beard Award-winning specialty grocery, is known for its housemade hummus, falafel and other Mideastern foods, and its highly curated selection of imported olives, spices, cheese, nuts and more.

The location will be 52 35th Street. No opening date has been set though Sahadi’s in Industry City is aiming for a 2018 or early 2019 grand opening.

Co-owner Christine Sahadi Whelan talked to this paper about the family’s excitement about expanding in the six million-square-foot mixed-use complex.
