The disappearance of grocery stores in Brooklyn has caused a lot of consternation among residents, and plenty in Bay Ridge. So folks there will be happy to hear that a green market is opening in the neighborhood; in fact, the market will set up in the parking lot of the former Key Foods at 9408 3rd Avenue, which neighbors fought hard to keep open. Yesterday, Councilman Vincent Gentile held a press conference to announce the arrival of fruit and veggie vendors in the borough's southernmost farmers' market. Alas, The Brooklyn Paper says the market is temporary; the Key Food will turn into a Walgreens by next summer, and probably want their parking lot back.
