Urban Rustic: Neighborhood Grocery, Local Food

Urban Rustic
Locavore grocery shopping has come to Williamsburg with Urban Rustic, a food enthusiast's paradise, stocked only with products sourced from farmers, butchers, cheese makers and other suppliers within a 100-mile radius. Electricity comes from wind power and handwritten tags give info on the origin of each item, which the owners meticulously source for specific reasons (and can tell you exactly why if you ask). Photos on the wall pay homage to the felled trees that were sacrificed to make the earthy floors (the owners were even part of the lumbering process). There's a juice and- coffee bar in the back with a special brunch menu on weekends. Have your order delivered or get your goods to go and have a picnic in the nearby community garden at McCarren Park. - 236 N 12th St, Brooklyn, NY
