Sahadi’s is a Middle Eastern market owned by a Lebanese family in Brooklyn. Last year, it received the
2017 James Beard Foundation America’s Classics Award
because it proved excellence in cuisine. It’s a business that is currently being run by the third generation of a Lebanese family that opened the store in Manhattan in 1895 then moved to Brooklyn in 1948. The aim of Sahadi’s is to meet the needs of the Lebanese community in the region. Good news! Sahadi’s is expanding! The Lebanese grocery store will open a second branch in Brooklyn’s Industry City later this year. What sets Sahadi’s apart from other markets is that it offers fresh products that are handmade by the family. The store sells the following: bulk food, cheese, olive oil, package specialty food, ethnic items, coffee, sweets, and prepared foods. In short, Sahadi’s is a smaller version of Lebanon in Brooklyn.
