A new Kosher Supermarket has quietly debuted on Dekalb Avenue.
Green Fresh Kosher Supermarket, located at 527 Dekalb Avenue (between Bedford and Skillman), held its grand opening today.
Green Fresh joins and on Myrtle Avenue, as well as on Flushing Avenue, to become only the fourth Kosher supermarket in Northern Bed-Stuy.
The store’s owner Mr. El, displayed great hesitence in speaking about the opening of his new store, except to say that it will offer all of the popular Kosher brands its neighbors have come to know and love, and it promises to be well stocked.
Crates of produce and boxes of dried food lined the sidewalk outside of the store, as Mr. El stood at the store's entrance, pulling on his beard while directing the order and placement of the items inside.
Some of the well-known Kosher brands filling the shelves include Kimach dried legumes, Landau’s, Osem’s soups, Shibolim, Wolff’s Kasha, Dagim and Gefen canned fish, Mehadrin's Yogurts and New York Kosher Deli meats.
The space, newly renovated and approximately 600 square feet, is bright, clean orderly and inviting. It also carries freshly brewed coffee, fresh produce, breads, milk, eggs, cheese and cereals-- many of the familiar brands of staples purchased at non-Kosher markets.
Green Fresh Kosher Supermarket is open Sunday through Friday, from 8:00am – 8:00pm.
