Report from Brooklyn's Unfancy Food Show
Williamsburg's East River Bar and an adjacent side yard were the site of the Unfancy Food Show, sponsored by brooklynbased.com. It ran from noon till 6 pm in sweltering heat, and there was a $5 admission charge--but the event was thronged nonetheless. There were approximately 20 exhibitors, and attendees repaired to the bar afterwards for pints of Six Points ale.
The event was timed to coincide with the opening day of the Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center, which, of course, has thousands of exhibitors. Actually, some of the food at the Unfancy Foods Show was pretty fancy, including salty caramels, exotic pickles, chocolate ice cream devoid of sugar and dairy, etc...

Mmmmmm, salty caramels from Nunu Chocolate.
And what would a Brooklyn food event be without an appearance by the lactose-tolerant Consider Bardwell Farm?
