Yes that’s Ikea in the background but no, Ikea isn’t expanding is business into fresh vegetables and fruit (although that would be cool). Located just a few blocks away from Ikea Brooklyn, the Red Hook Community Farm sells organic vegetables, fruit and meat (locally sourced). The Red Hook Community Farm is a nonprofit organization that promotes the sustainable development of Red Hook by turning vacant lots into vibrant farms and provides educational opportunities for youth 14-19 in the local neighborhood. They also have a smaller farm on Governor’s Island.

Interested in helping out? The Red Hook Community Farm also has a CSA program where you volunteer for a certain number of hours per season and in return you get access to a share of the crops.

As a resident of Brooklyn, I’m really happy to see more and more neighborhoods transform urban abandoned school fields and rooftops into vibrant farm fields. The Red Hook Community Farm is just one of many in Brooklyn.

The much anticipated Stumptown coffee shop has finally opened in Red Hook. I was on my way to the Red Hook soccer fields for some tacos and stopped by to check out the coffee shop on its 2nd day after their grand opening. At the coffee shop, you get the coffee brewed fresh by the actual Stumptown coffee baristas – how much to the source can you get? Skip the line at the Ace hotel and head down to the new Stumptown coffee shop.

You can of course buy the beans in bulk and all the coffee gadgets to enjoy Stumptown in the comfort of your own home. All varieties available – check it out!! Not really any place to hang out and drink your coffee though, I’d head down to the Valentino pier park a few blocks away in Red Hook.
