Tastes of Brooklyn - 2023

Tastes of Carroll Gardens - November 4

Support local and help the charity, Seeds in the Middle, build farm stands
in Brooklyn's food deserts so everyone has equal access to fruits and vegetables.

Buy tickets here for Carroll Gardens or just donate if you can't come


Welcome to our fall 2023 events. We opened 2023 in the spring with the widely popular Franklin Avenue Festival and Tastes of Bed-Stuy in partnership with Brooklyn Celebrity and Brooklyn Art Walks. We then traveled to Park Slope and Gowanus.

For the first time since the pandemic hit, we are super-thrilled to return to historic, brownstone, diverse Carroll Gardens!

We are incredibly grateful to all the chefs, restaurants, bars, bakeries, ice cream shops and boutiques who joined us throughout the pandemic and now. Let's continue supporting them!

Eat, sip and do good across Brooklyn, walking and exploring culinary gems at our Tastes of Brooklyn food and drink crawls.

At all our Tastes of Brooklyn events, enjoy restaurants, bars, food establishments and more small businesses in our culturally-rich, trendy, diverse artistic corners of Brooklyn, plus our pop-up Hip2B Healthy Market run by kids. Create your personal food and drink tour. Each ticket has 4 tastes and you can choose any of the array of participating establishments. Share tickets with friends. Explore our map and menu and choose which delicious establishments to visit. See the Tastes of Carroll Gardens map of participating places here and know - as you enjoy the exceptional culinary talent in Brooklyn - that you are supporting children creating healthier places to live and learn.

Eat. Drink. Walk. Art. Do Good.

Your purchases support our local businesses but they are also helping Seeds in the Middle expand school-run farm/flea markets, gardens and Hip2B Healthy cafes to erase food deserts in central Brooklyn. Vendors, independent chefs, more small biz welcome!

Our fundraising goal this year is to build a Seeds in the Middle spot in Crown Heights, where we can refrigerate and offer a pop-up farm stand and healthy cooking classes so everyone has equal access to eat and cook fresh and healthy options. We also want to help up to 18 schools and communities in central Brooklyn's lowest income neighborhoods overcome food insecurity by creating their own healthy businesses while boosting academic achievement and student change-makers as well! See Seeds in the Middle's map here of where we are and the schools who have asked for us.

Can't come, but want to support Seeds in the Middle's mission. Just donate here or even buy a $35 share of fresh produce on the ticket site! We can send you a donation letter. If you want to buy tickets or donate via Venmo or Cashapp, just click here for QR codes or call us at 862-701-3858.

Savor the entrepreneurial, delicious food and drink talent of historic, majestic neighborhoods. Pop-up flea market under development. Vendors, independent chefs, artists, email us at tastesofbrooklyn@gmail.com.

Be a culinary explorer again. Let's boost businesses and healthy kids together.
