09 Feb GRUBSTREET: Brooklyn’s Esteemed Sahadi’s Market Will Expand for the First Time
Sahadi’s is one of New York’s great legacy businesses, among the city’s best and most cherished markets. Originally opened in Manhattan in 1898, it’s been on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn and an anchor of the local Middle Eastern community since 1948. For fans and regulars, it’s a veritable wonderland of nuts, cheeses, spices, sweets, homemade hummus, and much more. The store’s allure has been magnified, maybe, by the fact that for over a century there’s always only ever been one Sahadi’s to go to. But 120 years and one James Beard Foundation America’s Classic Award later, the Sahadi’s dynasty will expand their business for the first time with a second market in Sunset Park’s Industry City.
