Step aside, asparagus water: in Williamsburg, the mecca of organic, sort-of-unnecessary, and often prohibitively expensive foodstuffs is planning to do things a little differently. The supermarket giant, which will open its newest Brooklyn location on Tuesday, July 26, will include a food hall packed with local flavor: OddFellows Ice Cream (which will have a stand outside), an outpost of No. 7 Restaurant, Luke’s Lobster’s grilled tail cart, Roberta’s pastries, and East Coast Poke will all be represented at the store, as well as a “traditional Jewish delicatessen” dubbed N4, which is Whole Food’s way of “paying homage to Williamsburg’s storied roots.”

Williamsburg Whole Foods Gets OddFellows, No. 7, and Deli Nodding to Nabe’s ‘Storied Roots’

We already knew that Luke’s Lobster was bringing an outpost of its lobster-tail cart to the forthcoming Williamsburg location of Whole Foods, and Roberta’s has been teasing the sticky buns (and other breads) it’ll bring to the table. Now comes news that some other local institutions will be repped at the megastore’s food hall, including OddFellows Ice Cream, No. 7, and East Coast Poke (which, sorry, is not a Pokemon gym, but a Smorgasburg vendor that specializes in Hawaiian salmon-and-rice bowls). Because if there’s one thing the Urban Outfitters concept store taught us about chain retailers, it’s that one simply does not walk into Williamsburg without giving some space to indie producers.

Just in time for Halloween, it’s Williamsburg’s worst nightmare. We’re told Ralph Lauren’s Double RL & Co will open Friday morning at 85 North 3rd Street, right next to the new Steven Alan Optical store and just around the corner from the new J.Crew store, and the new Urban Outfitters, and the new Madewell, and the new (and now boozed-up!) Starbucks. Soon the neighborhood will be called Williamsburg Mills.

Next time you spend your Whole Paycheck at Whole Foods, you’ll at least get to take in some art for free!

Whole Foods Market® Bowery, as it’s written in a press release, is opening a pop-up gallery featuring “LES-centric artwork” on its second-floor mezzanine, in partnership with the LES BID. Artists are invited to propose art “based on a combination of past and present themes that relate to the Lower East Side”; five winners will be selected to have their work displayed for a month, starting with a preview during the annual LES Opening Night: Art + Fashion on Sept. 7.

This summer 162 N. 4th Street will be home sweet home to sweetgreen, the Washington, D.C.-based chain of salad spots. The new location, on the corner of Bedford Avenue, will benefit from the foot traffic Whole Foods Willamsburg generates when it eventually opens across the street, and will share a building with forthcoming locations of Umami Burger and Parm.
