Greene Grape Delivers – with Instacart!

Does your inner chef shudder when you have to order take out because you didn’t have time to shop for groceries?

Does taking a trip to the store conflict with the napping schedule of your newborn?

Are you just the kind of person who would rather do all of your shopping at home in your pajamas?

Well you’re in luck! We are happy to announce our partnership with Instacart, an online grocery store that will deliver products from our shop directly to you. Go online, select all of the items you want, and they will be delivered to your door within an hour.

“We’re thrilled that this Instacart partnership will now enable us to expand the reach of the local farms we carry,” says our business owner, Amy Bennett. “We think of it as another kind of CSA – convenient supported agriculture.”

We’re sweet on you, Fort Greene

Come in this weekend and take part in edible expressions of our love and affection for good food and good friends.

At the Cheese Counter we’ll be hosting a cheese and chocolate tasting. You’ll also find three heart shaped bloomy rind cheeses – Petit Bonheur, Heart’s Desire (smoky cheese from Spain), and Old Flame (Goat’s milk cheese from Oregon) for the admirer who doesn’t mind acting a little cheesy about their feelings.

Be sure to stop by the Butcher and pick up a Skirt Steak Rose or Rib-Eye Heart to impress the creative carnivore in your life.

And if you’re looking for a place to pick up a romantic meal, our Deli will be featuring a luscious Roasted Beet SaladBlood Orange Glazed Salmon, and house made Chocolate Dipped Strawberries for all to enjoy.

Lastly, walk next door where Wine & Spirits will be hosting a chocolate whiskey tasting with King’s County Whiskey on Friday the 13th from 5pm-7pm.

Love Grace, Love Ice Cream

At this time of year we could all use a little pick me up. Whether your mood is blue or your fingers are, we have a rainbow of new treats to boost you back to normal!

First up is a line of juices from Love Grace. Based in Long Island City, they create cold pressed juices with high quality, organic fruits and veggies.  Each juice contains more nutrients than we have time to write about, but check out their glowing reviews on literally every health website.

The second flock of treats that we’re sure will rid you of your winter woes is Three Little Birds vegan ice creams. Cashew and peanut based, these are decadent and rich with flavorful ribbons and cookie mix-ins – like the Ben and Jerry’s of vegan ice cream! Even more so than the taste, you’ll be surprised at how simple the ingredient list is on each pint.

Treat yourself to sunshine in a bottle or happiness in a pint!

The countdown to the Half Time Show begins now…

Meet the Makers on Wednesday, January 14th!

Meet the local artists, curators and collectors who made this year’s Holiday Pop Up Market happen! The shop is now closed, but we thought we’d throw a mixer in their honor to give these artisans and all shoppers who supported them a chance meet each other and the community. We’re offering an all night Happy Hour on our divine craft beers and exquisite wine selection.

**This is the first in a series of events at ANNEX that will celebrate the people who are making provisions, libations, and assorted other creations in the New York region.**

ANNEX 753 Fulton at the corner of S. Portland, Time: 7pm-10pm. We hope to see you there!
