Myrtle Supermarket Opening in Late Summer


It’s been a long road, but the supermarket on Myrtle and Ashland, on the Andrea site, is finally happening, and it’s scheduled to open late this summer. Last night we missed the community meeting, but we spoke with State Committee Member Lincoln Restler, who co-hosted the event with Councilwoman Tish James and the Red Apple Group. He said there were over 100 residents there, mostly from the nearby low- and middle-income housing developments. Construction has begun on a ground-floor CVS, a small cafe, and the below-ground supermarket. Those attending gave feedback on issues like affordability, local hiring and food choice. There are no other Red Apple Supermarkets in New York, but Committee Member Restler tells us “it will offer a more affordable price point to meet the needs of working families in Fort Greene.” And after pressing him that this was actually happening, he promised “definitely…. finally this is going to be built.”
