Grocery buying is a daily occurrence for some, a weekly one for others. If you’re like me, it’s officially a weekly one; but you always forget things and end up going pretty much daily anyway. Some may go to only one market or grocery store almost religiously; others spread their grocery dollars around depending on convenience and quality or selection of a particular product.

Last week we asked you all where you go in Bushwick, East Williamsburg, and Ridgewood to make what are, without a doubt, some of the more important purchases you can make. We offered a few guidelines as to what constitutes a “grocery store,” as opposed to just any store that also happens to have some grocery items.

You responded, nominating a tight yet diverse field of options — everything from regional supermarket chains to coops and small specialty groceries that just barely fit our criteria.

At Bushwick Daily, we value our independence and integrity on both personal and journalistic levels. We do not accept bribes of any shape or form in exchange for nominations or votes. Nominated businesses are, however, both allowed and encouraged to advertise their nomination and urge their customers to vote.

So, BDers — vote below for your favorite neighborhood grocery store, a Best of Bushwick 2018 first!

VOTING WILL END AT 11:59 PM ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8.
