Brooklyn Food Stories: Farms, Markets, and Shops that have Shaped Brooklyn Appetites and Communities
Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont St., Brooklyn)
Hear the stories behind Brooklyn farms, markets, and shops, and how their individual efforts have shaped neighborhoods and Brooklynites’ appetites over time. Based on recorded interviews and historical research that Urban Oyster has conducted for its Brooklyn-based tours, this presentation will include stories about Wallabout Market, Moore Street Market, shops in Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill, farmers currently growing food in Brooklyn, and more. David Naczycz and Cindy VandenBosch, co-founders of Urban Oyster, will be the presenters. This event is part of BHS’s Brooklyn Food Stories. Advanced ticket purchase recommended as the event will fill up. Complimentary Brooklyn Brewery beer or bottled water included with ticket price.
