In New York City, temptation to stay close to home often rivals the temptation to party. So we have just the party for you: Fort Greene’s first ever EAT GREENE street festival will be just around the corner and full of delicious food, drinks, and community fun! And we’re excited to welcome our party co-host, local craft beer experts Interboro Spirits & Ales!
Interboro is Brooklyn’s only combination craft brewery and distillery. They produce both flavorful beers as well as canned cocktails. Known for their juicy, lightly bitter and hoppy canned IPAs, Interboro also makes canned gin & tonic, ciders, and more. The relatively new Interboro has been topping beer lists across the boroughs. Given founder Jesse Ferguson’s background in both the record industry and work for famed brewers Carton Brewing and Other Half Brewing, it’s no surprise his own brewery is a broadly resonating hit machine.
A variety of their beers have graced our taps at Annex. We pride ourselves on serving a rotating selection of craft beers on draft, and have been longtime fans of Interboro’s output. If craft beers are your jam too, then you’ll need to stop by our block party! Interboro is doing a special limited can release brew available only at Eat Greene. Come party local with us and get an exclusive sip of local craft beer!
Save the Date
Come by on Saturday, September 16th to hang out with Interboro and a host of other local faves on S. Portland Ave between Lafayette and Fulton St.!
For us at Provisions, the surest sign of the start of summer is the New York Good Food Mercantile, an expo of mostly local food products that are as delicious as they are ethical; the GoodFood movement is about prioritizing the stories behind our food. We’re proud to feature many of these producers in our store because we know that transparency in food production is important not only for our guests to make informed decisions, but for creating a more viable food system overall.
We’re kicking it off this Saturday at Habana Works’ Annual Earth Day Expo!
We’ll be stationed at this celebration of urban environmentalism at Habana Outpost between 11am-2pm.
Learn from our agriculture expert, Mickey Davis, what it means to be a sustainable farm. To help explain some complex ideas, we’ll have a host of coloring pages (for kids and adults alike) that break it all down. We’re also calling all crafty foodies to join us at our “Ugly Produce Decoration Station.” Afterwards, come by our shop and explore all of the Sustainability Do’s and Dont’s that we practice every day!
Then come in on Earth Day – Wednesday, April 22nd – as we give back to the neighborhood and promote earthy friendly shopping habits with a free re-usable bag give-a-way all day!
We’d like to give many thanks to our community here in Fort Greene- we’re working hard to help create a greener future and we couldn’t do it without all of you.
This Thursday 4/24 from 5p-7pm at Provisions we are proud to be hosting a collaborative tasting from Kelso Beer and Bee’s Knees Food Co.

Bee’s Knees Food Co. is a Chicago based maker of roasted nuts designed as the perfect bar snack, these are nuts designed to be paired with beers, so much so that each package has beer pairing recommendations printed on them.

We’ve been in the new space at 767 Fulton Street for nearly a week now, and as we settle in, our awesome local vendors have been clamoring to come in and share their products with you! Many of these are debuting here on our new, spacious shelves, so come treat yourself to a nibble, as we continue the celebration of the new Provisions!
Whether you’re hosting, or attending as a guest, you’ll be the life of the party this Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. If you’re in charge of the pre-dinner sweets, pick some new-harvest, local apples from Hudson Valley. We’ll be getting a very limited amount of Challah* from ORWASHERS on Wednesday, ready to be dipped into luscious raw honey from PUMPKIN VILLAGE.
If you’re a fan of Gefilte Fish, give THE GEFILTERIA a try. In the freezer, The Gefilteria takes this traditional dish to the next level, layering pike and whitefish with pink salmon, both delicious and beautiful! Complement your appetizer with a dollop of ISH Citrus or Beet Horseradish, bright and sweet.
For those who celebrate, we wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
*If you’d like to reserve a challah, please give us a call by Friday (8/30) afternoon.
One of the myriad unique experiences about shopping at Greene Grape Provisions is the ability to purchase baby greens harvested literally hours ago – potentially even by the person standing in line behind you.
That’s right: we at the Greene Grape are fortunate enough to source our baby greens from The Brooklyn Grange, a rooftop Farm at the Navy Yard. When you can eat food grown by your neighbor, why would you eat anything else? Check them out – and also, check out this photo of some Greene Grapers taking a tour of the farm!
Long story short, a new generation of farmers (urban and otherwise) are dramatically changing the way we source our food here in the United States, and the Greenhorns have been in on the ground floor for quite some time. This Thursday night, please join us for a screening of their eponymous documentary, followed by a panel discussion – featuring participants from the Brooklyn Grange, Battery Urban Farm and the Fort Greene Park Conservancy Vegetable Garden. Doors are at 7pm; more information is available here.
Completed after nearly three years in production, The Greenhorns explores the lives of America’s young farming community – its spirit, practices, and needs. It is the filmmaker’s hope that by broadcasting the stories and voices of these young farmers, we can build the case for those considering a career in agriculture – to embolden them, to entice them, and to recruit them into farming.
Bixby & Co. Chocolate on Sunday from 11:30-2:30pm at Provisions
And The Nominees For Best Wines To Pair With Pipcorn Are…
Did you know German movie theaters serve sweet kettle corn instead of our salted, buttered variety? With a kettle corn tasting at Provisions on Friday, we found some Austrian and German wines to pair. Join us Saturday night to sample:
Frank Etz Gruner Veltliner ’11 1L – This crisp, refreshing Gruner in a 1 Liter bottle is a fantastic value and a perennial staff favorite. Light, with bright notes of citrus and stone fruits.
Schmitts Kinder Silvaner ’11 – Made in Bavaria, in South East Germany, this wine is full-bodied with nice minerality, subtle spice and balanced acidity.
Weingut Schmitges Dry Riesling ’11 – A Classic style Riesling made in the Mosel, this wine boasts ripe peach, the slightest hint of sweetness and a thirst-quenching acidity on the finish to keep you wanting more. Good thing it comes in a liter!
Umathum Sankt Laurent ’10 – Made from the lesser known grape Sankt Laurent, this wine is akin to a Pinot Noir but with a funkier, more savory twist. Lighter in body, this red is silky with notes of spice and dark cherries.
