ISO good market near Crown Heights/Prospect Heights

Supersleuth | Dec 2, 2004 03:41 PM

My husband and I recently moved to Dean Street near Franklin Avenue, and have yet to find a dependable market. We do a lot of cooking at home, don't buy prepared foods, and prefer to eat organic produce as much as possible. Also, we mostly eat vegetarian at home. Basically we need a place with a good produce selection, and staples such as rice, noodles, tofu, organic eggs, etc.

The grocery stores immediately around us are pretty pathetic. We tried Fresh Direct which has a decent selection but the amount of packaging they use is really disturbing. After failing to find much of what I needed at that newer Key Foods on Flatbush and Sterling, I made a quick run across the street to what I think was a Korean market called Nature Land, or something similar, which seemed superior but I didn't get a very good look.

Any advice? We have a car, so it doesn't have to be in walking distance. Late hours are also a plus.
