Specialty food markets, antique stores, independent boutiques, and the Atlantic Center shopping mall make Atlantic Avenue a destination for shoppers of all kinds. Whether you’re looking for exotic Middle Eastern spices or a unique birthday gift, you’re sure to find it while strolling along this historic avenue.

A great place to begin a day of shopping is at Sahadi’s, at 187 Atlantic Avenue between Clinton Street and Court Street.

Sahadi’s has been serving Brooklyn since 1948, attracting customers with inexpensive spices, over 150 types of cheeses, a variety of olive oils, and other imported ethnic foods. Nuts, olives, and fresh coffee beans are sold from bulk bins, and gourmet dishes like baklava and baba ghanoush are prepared daily.
