Sheepshead Bay Rd’s Global Wholesale Market To Close


Global Wholesale Market at 1414 Sheepshead Bay Road is closing down, numerous readers tell Sheepshead Bites, and, currently, only the fruit-and-vegetable portion of the store is still open.

Global Wholesale Market has occupied the space for more than a decade, serving as a small supermarket for Eastern European meats, cheeses, baked goods and canned and bottled imports, alongside fresh produce.

But about a week or two ago, we’re told, they locked up the interior portion of the structure, leaving only the semi-enclosed produce area.

We stopped by today and an employee confirmed they are closing for good. The interior, it seems, is being gutted, and only a few items remain in the produce section. They will likely close by the end of the month.
