It’s no secret that Brooklyn is passionate about its local food artisans, chefs, farmers, non-profits and shops. We chose our nominees and put the selections to your vote. Thanks to everyone who participated and — most importantly — thanks to the individuals and organizations who continue to create our local food and drink experiences. Winners or not, we couldn’t be more proud of our innovative and enterprising borough.
Based on your votes, here are our 2014 Local Heroes:
Food Store/Market: BKLYN Larder
Farm/Farmer: East New York Farms
Food/Beverage Artisan: Four & Twenty Blackbirds
Non-profit Organization: Greenmarket/GrowNYC
