The Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City

One of our favorite events was today: the Fancy Food Show in New York City! The Summer Fancy Food Show is North America’s largest specialty food and beverage event. We were so happy to be a part of all the food and fun! Some of our favorite Brooklyn neighbors were also at the show: Dona Chai, Salt of the Earth, Jam Stand, Raaka, Cracked Candy, and Gradys. Dona Chai sells chai concentrate, Salt of the Earth is a bakery, Jam Stand is a jam company, Raaka offers artisanal chocolate bars, Cracked Candy makes sugar-free candy, and Gradys sells iced coffee concentrate. Our Brooklyn crew gathered with many other food vendors from all 50 states, and with countries all over the world.

We're Brooklyn obsessed, so here are some facts about our home:

  1. Brooklyn is the 7th most populous county in the United States behind such major cities as Los Angeles and San Diego.
  2. Brooklyn has approximately 2.5 million residents, which means if it were to be separated from the rest of New York City, Brooklyn would become the 4th most populous U.S. city.
  3. While most people know it as simply Brooklyn, this New York borough also goes by the name Kings County and the “Borough of Homes and Churches.”
  4. While physically located on the island, Brooklyn is not considered a part of Long Island.
  5. Brooklyn has 30 miles of waterfront.
  6. Some things invented in Brooklyn include the deep-fried Twinkie, sweet & low, teddy bears, and America’s first roller coaster. And in 1946 the first bank credit card was used at Flatbush National Bank.
  7. The borough we know today as “Brooklyn” was named by Dutch colonists after a village in the Netherlands called “Breuckelen.”
