SHEEPSHEAD BAY – Muskat Market, the new Glatt Kosher Gourmet Grocery store at 2613 Avenue U in Sheepshead (corner of E26th Street), had its soft opening on June 29, and has been stocking the shelves in anticipation of the Grand Opening on August 22.

The market has been under construction since 2014 and was originally expected to open in the summer of 2015. Location is the former home of legendary Richard Yees restaurant, which closed in 2008.

The current interior is spacious, offering groceries as well as cakes and pastries, a section of prepared foods, as well as a flower stand.

Decor is striking, with what feels like a thousand little woven baskets attached to the ceiling throughout the store:

While the store is open, they are yet to offer catering. Street parking only.

  1. Muscat Market obviously spent some time cultivating a fancy image but I don’t think that works in this part of Brooklyn. Most people around here just want to shop in a regular supermarket. The whole fancy/gourmet/upscale angle might actually backfire.

  2. Is this a sponsored post? I see there’s an ad for the market directly under the copy. Usually news outlets work a little harder to conceal the quid pro quo aspect of such stories.
