Brooklyn Fare Kitchen & Market officially announced its Lower East Side entrance with banner advertising at One Manhattan Square.

The vinyl skins are now in the windows along Cherry Street, advertising free delivery and fresh produce.

As previously reported, the upscale grocer signed a lease to occupy 25,500 square-feet across two floors in the base of the gargantuan tower.

The arrival of a supermarket on this spot in Two Bridges is nearly a decade in the making. Not since Extell purchased the land and razed Pathmark in late-2012 has there been a grocer here to service the immediate neighborhood.

One Manhattan Square is the fifth and largest city location for Brooklyn Fare, which will boast an all-glass storefront, 20-foot ceilings and more than 80 feet of frontage. The market will offer various prepared foods, deli and sushi choices, a coffee bar, as well as groceries. Its stated mission is to “merge the gourmet with the familiar, providing fresh, delicious groceries and prepared foods at approachable prices, with the perks and services of an old-school neighborhood grocer.”

The new location should open later this year.
