NYC is full of amazing, magical mom & pop grocery stores, and we feel very lucky to be able to sell our jam at many of these establishments. Some we feel really, really entranced with and will give the un-suppressible yelp of approval to on this website.
COURT STREET GROCERS -- perfectly curated, impeccably arranged, delightfully staffed
Everytime I bring jam by the Court Street Grocers, my reaction is amusingly the same. I look around and think, "it's so pretty," then, "it smells amazing," then, "the staff is so lovely and kind and soft-spoken." They always seem genuinely excited about the jam, then they say something nice about my business, then they pay promptly and with no hassle, awkwardness or uncomfortable nudging on my part. And they're all very adorable looking as well.
Then of course there are the products they sell. Great coffee, amazing sandwiches, and a perfectly curated selection of packaged goods. It reminds me of another great shop, Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which has the same harmony of staff, curated goods, and aesthetic charm.
At the southern end of Carrol Gardens, where it's particularly quirky and cute, just down the street from infamous Frankie's & Prime Meats, and right across the street from Buttermilk Channel, these guys are perfectly situated in good-to-put-in-your-belly row.
Keep up the good work, guys!
