The stretch along Fulton Street in Clinton Hill has a new business-Brooklyn Victory Garden. The small storefront at 920 Fulton Street, in the old Designer Braids location, is an “urban general store offering local grocery goods that support the local economy.”
While this stretch of Fulton Street has gotten better in recent years, the local economy is certainly still in need of support. On the store’s Facebook page they bill themselves as “Brooklyn’s newest stop for meats, gifts, cheeses and more that are Local, Ethical and Sustainable.”
Owner, Tess Gill, also documents the process of opening a small storefront in Clinton Hill on the Facebook page. She cleverly used the social media site to organize painting jobs and other group projects to help speed the opening process.
The page has already accumulated a significant following, and discussions detailing the store’s philosophy have already engaged soon-to-be patrons. With topics such as raw milk, antibiotics in meat, ethical treatment of animals, artisanal candies, raw diets and factory farming; it is safe to say you won’t find any eggs laying around from Jack DeCoster.
