SHOUT OUT TO BROOKLYN!! MARTHA STEWART VISITS MY HOOD AND MY HOMIE JOEL HOROWITZ OF PEOPLES POPS


Well HOT DAMN my neighborhood property value just went up!! The Martha Stewart Show came for a visit to Brooklyn and hit up a few of my favorite places...... The show focused on the local food movement exploring the close connections between growers restaurants distribution and the enthusiasm of eaters who want to know where their food comes from. Martha visited two places across the street from my house on Broadway in Williamsburg - Marlow&Sons and Marlow&Daughters - a fantastic restaurant and butcher shop specializing in local food, Marlow gets much of their produce from Rooftop Farms in Greenpoint which literally grows produce on a warehouse rooftop and supplies many local restaurants and shops - I buy this produce everyday and it is amazing..... Next stop The Brooklyn Flea where Martha tasted every edible thing available!! .... A friend of mine Joel Horowitz and his partners David Carrell and Nathalie Jordi sell their own home made Peoples Pops at the Brooklyn Flea - gourmet popsicles made from fresh local fruits and herbs in interesting combinations like "Sweet Blackberry & Cantaloupe," "Watermelon & Basil," "Roasted Apricot & Lavender Holyfield," and "Crazy-Ass Sweet-Cream-Corn & Blackberry."

And a clip of Martha with my friend Joel Horowitz and his partner David Carrell of People's Pops....
