Sahadi’s Imports on Atlantic Ave. in Brookyn, NY
Around the corner from Trader Joe’s in Brooklyn is Sahadis on Atlantic Avenue, a Middle Eastern importing company. A friend kindly reminded me to visit at the beginning of this year. Why did it take a while to visit, I don’t have a reasonable explanation. Buying food in bulk at Sahadis would’ve saved money a long time ago when I needed the extra change. Buying a prepackaged, one-pound bag of nuts or dried fruit could be costly. Especially, when only a few ounces are needed, and it’s not a common pantry item. However, I brought a container of pitted Kalamata olives for $3.00. It was cheaper per ounce than Trader Joe’s olives. I happened to make my visit on a Saturday afternoon, a crowded day for grocery shopping. It’s not a “help yourself” store; instead employees weigh and price your goods. It’s an old-fashioned shopping method of grabbing a ticket with a number and waiting for your turn to be called upon for assistance. This place will become my destination for bulk goods.
