New to Two Bridges: Brooklyn Fare Kitchen and Market Expands

Brooklyn Fare Kitchen and Market has opened a new 25,500-square-foot supermarket in Lower Manhattan. Situated at 227 Cherry Street in the Two Bridges neighborhood, this new location is on the ground floor of One Manhattan Square, a luxury condo building. Brooklyn Fare, which opened its first store in 2009, plans to expand with additional locations in West Village, Hudson Yards, Lincoln Square, and Brooklyn. The new store features an all-glass storefront, 20-foot ceilings, and offers a variety of fresh produce, prepared foods, and other affordable products. The new store addresses the void left by the closure of a Pathmark grocery store in the neighborhood in 2012. The arrival of this store coincides with significant changes in New York City’s grocery landscape, with numerous new openings replacing big-box stores that closed during the pandemic.

Recently, Whole Foods Market opened a store at Harry Macklowe’s 1 Wall Street and plans to launch smaller-format Whole Foods Daily Shop locations. Wegmans has opened two new stores in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and at Vornado’s 770 Broadway in Astor Place. Additionally, German discount grocer Lidl has expanded with new stores in Staten Island, Harlem, and Queens.
