January 23, 2006, NY Magazine — No matter what Brooklyn real-estate agents say, a neighborhood doesn’t officially happen until it gets its own top-notch fancy-food emporium: What was South Williamsburg, after all, before Marlow & Sons, Park Slope before Blue Apron, or Cobble Hill before Tuller Premium Foods? Now, with Foragers Market, a spacious new shop run by Anna Castellani, the owner of the Dumbo General Store, and her three artist partners, Dumbo has a food fetishist’s paradise to call its own. You’ll find everything from June Taylor jams to Benedetto Cavalieri pastas on the artfully stocked shelves, and there are eye-catching departments for meat and poultry, charcuterie, seafood, and prepared foods. Not to mention 150 cheeses. 56 Adams St., at Front St., Dumbo, Brooklyn; 718-801-8400.
