Brooklyn is fast becoming New York’s future food center. With a large portion of foodies either living or running businesses in the borough, monthly destinations such as the Greenpoint Food Market and Parked (the upcoming food truck festival at The Brooklyn Yard) are helping in the continued efforts to drive the independent food movement and congregate a wide spectrum of cuisine lovers. It comes as no major surprise that a food networking site has just been launched.
Nona Brooklyn aims to become the online community hub for locavores who can’t get enough of the culture of food. Members sign up to create a profile and log in to hear direct from the chefs and owners; stay informed on events, workshops or new stores and above all support the growth of the entrepreneurial movements. The headline ‘Chains need not apply’ on the directory portion of the site is a strong indication of who won’t be invited to the dinner party.
