The newest shop on Newkirk Plaza opened this past Friday. Plaza Fruits & Vegetables took over the space that used to be Golden Krust, and in addition to a decent variety of fresh fruits and veggies and other grocery items (you want salt cod? they got it), they’ve got a selection of plants and flowers.
There are a few house plants, some tomato, pepper, and herb plants for your garden, and a refrigerated case in the back where you can put together an affordable bouquet, and they’ve also got some balloons and teddy bears. It’s not going to replace Lindeman/Newkirk Florist, but it’s nice to have another option for flowers in the area, especially with Mother’s Day coming up.
