Bushwick Photo du Jour: Graham Avenue

I found this beautiful old storefront during my last jaunt to the Moore Street Market. For those of you who are not in the know, the Graham Avenue Business District (from Johnson Avenue to roughly Cook Street) is an amazingly fun way to while away part of a Saturday afternoon— especially if you are a Mexican food maven like me. Not only did I find a number of hitherto untried hot sauces to try, but I also stocked up on fixings for many a cold winter night meal:

  • Rajas
  • La Morena refried beans with chipolte and adobo
  • Some of the best looking poblano peppers I have seen in months
  • Culantro (think cilantro on steroids)
  • And much, much more!

Do give this area a whirl. Be sure to check out the Moore Street Market while you’re there:

Moore Street Market (AKA “La Marqueta”)
110 Moore Street
Brooklyn, New York 11206

Bon apetit!

  2. Unfortunately, as with every other business of value to actual human beings here in New York, the clock still looks to be ticking on “La Marqueta”‘s future. Let’s hope a modern day miracle occurs, and they’re not displaced for what Mayor McChee$e considers to be affordable housing (here in LIC, it’s now defined as being available to people making $60K-$150K per annum).
