Our headquarters laptop is finally functioning again and we’d like to thank Santa for not obliterating our data and pictures so that we might share the spectacular FOODtacular that occurred here at Greenpoint Food Market last week!
Cut out snowflakes, santa hats, gift wrapping, and music (no holiday tunes, thank god) abounded inside the Church of Messiah and we are grateful to all the folks who came out despite the threat of an oncoming snow storm, (which are only now starting to disintegrate) meandering through the isles shopping for their beloveds with pickles, jam, cookies, chocolate and beyond. We loved the high energy holiday spirit which just seemed to make everyone nicer than usual. Here are some pictures if you missed out!

Cobra Pate brought it in a new flavor this time around, the ginger carrot cashew. It was super flavorful and punchy.
A Park’s green tea macaroons were out of this world, as was her raisin bread. Green tea as dessert should be the next new big thing. Green tea ice cream, green tea macaroons, green tea tiramisu, green tea cannolis, green tea crepes, green tea…
We love Sandwich Friend’s scandalous sandwich titles as much as we enjoy eating them. The saucy tempehtress has veggies, tempeh, pickles, and laid on sesame buns. It was light but filling.
