Best Brooklyn neighborhood for a foodie?

MB fka MB | Jul 31, 2007 08:17 AM

So I'm making the move to Brooklyn and wondering what neighborhood is going to have the best food shopping, especially for a girl that likes to cook a lot and eat healthy (organic when possible or not so healthy (mmmmm can you say raw cheese...)?

I enjoyed shopping at Union Market in Park Slope (reminded me a bit of Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, MA) and found some of the prices to be highly competitive. I'm not sure how I feel about the Co-op after reading up a bit. (I currently belong to a paid-membership Co-op.) I don't mind making multiple stops to find just what I want, but proximity to a number of (preferably) walk-able locations - especially farmers markets - is highly desirable. Any suggestions as I begin looking for a new 'hood?
