Greene Grape Provisions, located in two adjacent storefronts on Fulton Street in Fort Greene, provides the best quality gourmet groceries to our Brooklyn neighborhood. We offer locally sourced organic produce, farmstead & artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, ethically-sourced meats and fish from our whole animal butcher and fishmonger, along with house-made prepared foods and tasty sandwiches. We also stock ice-cold craft beers, unique beverages, local dairy products, and artisan ice cream. At Greene Grape Provisions, eating well is a way of life.

Our meat & seafood department practices whole animal butchery and sustainable fishery. Our animals are grass fed and pasture raised. The farms we work with are chosen based on quality, commitment to regenerative agriculture, and humane handling practices. We believe that locality and quality go hand in hand- from pasture to Provisions; the entire supply chain is no more than 300 miles long. We work with farmers in NJ, NY, PA & VT. When it comes to fish there’s no fishy business here! We believe that a sustainable seafood system depends on well-informed consumers and responsible purveyors.
