Chutneys For Sale in Red Hook, Brooklyn

If you didn't already have enough reasons to visit Red Hook, Brooklyn (terrific bakeries, restaurants, Ikea, Fairway) you'd probably still make the trip for the famous Ball Fields food vendors alone (for those not familiar with this Latin-themed Foodie Paradise, read about it here). Now Red Hook's open air market and performance space, Mercado, is launching its own pop-up shop featuring local, hand-created food products and crafts - La Tiendita. 

August 7th is the Grand (yet Soft) Opening and we'll be there to celebrate the newest addition to a neighborhood growing more and more exciting each day! Best of all, you can grab yourself a jar of chutney (or ketchup or relish) from The Collective as we're proud to announce our presence on La Tiendita's inaugural shelves. SO next time you grab a bag of Ikea's frozen meatballs skip the lingonberries and opt instead for a small-batch and hand-crafted chutney created in Brooklyn!
