Kitchen Incubator

EDC has issued an RFP for a “kitchen incubator” in Brooklyn. The project would create a “food-use related incubator program, such as food manufacturing, storage, or shared commercial kitchen space” in northern Brooklyn. The RFP identifies Bed-Stuy, Brownsville and the Moore Street market in East Williamsburg as some ofmthe potential locations. The latter location makes a ton of sense – a vibrant but underutilized WPA-era food market. The community and the merchants at the market strongly support locating the incubator there, and the city is planning a $1.2 million plaza upgrade for the exterior.
