As I threatened previously, we're going to be seeing a lot of small greengrocer type stores around Flatbush. I know they're not supermarkets, but I love them. I grew up shopping at one myself, Times Farm in Union, NJ (we had two A&Ps nearby, and both had awful produce). It's only now occurring to me that I haven't been back to Times Farm since I moved out of Union. Anyway, this store on Flatbush Ave is just over a block south of the intersection of Lincoln Road, where Wholesome and Lincoln Market are.
As usual, this store makes full use of its sidewalk space to display piles of inviting-looking fresh vegetables and fruit. I didn't stop inside this one, but we'll see plenty more like this later in the group!
