Bklyn Larder is a celebration of good food. A retail cheese and provisions shop specializing in sustainably produced ingredients, Bklyn Larder has been providing the Park Slope and Prospect Heights community with a welcoming place to find and enjoy hand-crafted cheeses, homemade prepared foods, and hard-to-find grocery items since its opening in June of 2009.
We are a team of dedicated individuals eager to share our knowledge and passion with you and to bring the work of talented international and local producers of cheeses, meats, dairy products, jams, honeys, oils and more to our market.
Bklyn Larder aims to be a positive force in our neighborhood, and that means following an environmentally responsible business model. We use wind power through ConEdison Solutions, our space was designed and constructed using environmentally friendly materials such as soy-based biofoam for insulation and reclaimed materials, our appliances are water and energy-efficient, and all of our packaging is made from recycled materials and/or biodegradable.
Who We Are:
Mandy Wynn, Proprietor
Mandy hails from a family of expert entertainers, and she’s long been honing her skills as a cook and host via private lessons with local chefs and plenty of party-throwing practice. For the first fifteen years of her professional career, Mandy focused on leadership and business development, most recently for an independent school on the Upper West Side. That work centered on building community and nurturing connections among people. Mandy believes that food -- preparing it and sharing it with others -- is one of the most genuine ways to do both those things. She became the proprietor of Bklyn Larder at the start of 2017, combining her professional experience with her greatest passions. This move made perfect sense: Mandy’s been a Larder regular from the day the shop opened in 2009. She’s consulted with her brothers, who own a family of restaurants on the west coast. And she’s helped several organizations grow and thrive while holding on to the key qualities that make them special and unique. She’s excited to do the same for Bklyn Larder.
