Headed to the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene on Saturday? Check out these delicious, Clean Plates-approved food vendors as you wander the aisles:
These touted pickle masters use local produce whenever possible; if the produce they need is out of season, they contact farms and speak directly with the growers to find out where the produce is coming from and if it’s grown sustainably.
The purveyors of Italy’s original slow-cooked fast food, porchetta, use humanely raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free pork from a Niman Ranch farm in Iowa. Their produce is from Riviera (some of which is local), and the bread comes from local bakery Grandaisy.
Sea Bean Goods
The from-scratch, seasonal soup makers use produce from Jersey Farm, SS&O Farms, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm and others; even if the produce isn’t always organic, they source from farms that don’t use pesticides or GMOs. All meats are hormone- and antibiotic-free, and their seafood is wild-caught and usually from Long Island.
The Regal Vegan
“Save the Animals, Kill the Vegetables” is The Regal Vegan’s philosophy. Their meat-, egg- and dairy-free “paté” called Faux Gras is made from iron-rich lentils, caramelized onions, toasted walnuts, extra virgin olive oil, tamari, mirin, ume plum vinegar and miso paste.
