Foster Sundry is a specialty grocery located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Since we opened in August 2015, the shop has evolved and grown into a neighborhood hub for everything from weekend brunch to weeknight groceries, coffee on your morning commute and a draft beer after work.
We are Bushwick's first full-service cheese counter. Foster himself is at the helm, boasting 15 years of experience in cheese and a team of some of the best, nerdiest mongers around. We carry a variety of American and European artisan cheeses that always represent what's in season and what's delicious. Our cheese counter reflects our focus on relationships, with producers as much as with customers. These are real cheeses made by real people, on real, sustainable farms. We only carry the stuff we love.
Our whole-animal butcher counter is run by a team of experienced, knowledgeable meat mongers who are happy to cut, tie, spatchcock, and french to your specifications. We work with local purveyors that we know and trust in the New York and New Jersey area. Not all of our producers are certified organic, but they do all operate in keeping with ethical and sustainable animal husbandry practices. Our colorful selection of sausages have been featured in Bon Appetit magazine, on ABC's The Chew, and soon, on your dining room table. Oh, and we've got you covered for the holidays, too.
We offer a wide variety of specialty grocery products, from Italian arrabbiatta made by real nonni in Rome to Middle Eastern zatar blended right here in Brooklyn. The shelves are stocked with boutique ferments, freshly milled local flour, and only the best imported handmade pastas. Our grocery department is driven by our commitment to support local business and offer top quality products, all with an eye on value. Get stuff to eat or get stuff to cook, and let our team help you with new ingredients and inventive recipes.
Coffee almost didn't make it into the original opening of Foster Sundry back in 2015. But the best way to describe Aaron Foster's sister, Dana, is that she is to the coffee world what our Foster is to cheese. Dana helped us launch our coffee program just before opening the shop, and it's now a pillar of our business and our community. Our ongoing relationship with Parlor Coffee means we stock the best quality beans, brewed on our PB2 La Marzocco espresso machine and served in Churchill Pottery porcelain serviceware.
All of the food out of the Foster Sundry kitchen is made by hand, with love, to order. The proteins in our sandwiches, salads, and soups come straight from the butcher counter and are sourced locally and sustainably—like all the ingredients we use. We update our sandwich menu regularly, based on the local ingredients that are available and in season and, of course, on our seasonal cravings, like warm house chili in the winter and that drool-worthy beef bacon BBLT in the summer.
