Getting ready for saturday!

As we announced it previously, Saturday June 16th is a big day for Pistache : we will have a stand at the Dekalb Market, in Brooklyn. Getting ready is a part of the excitement. A big part of it. And getting ready means…

… travelling all over Brooklyn to buy equipment and utensils in places that are our Ali Baba caverns, like Kerekes in Borough Park, THE wonderland of bakers (they carry almost everything). Or like The Green Village in Bushwick, a cluttered and dusty mess of riches where we spent hours and hours gathering the old-fashion plates and tableware to flatter Pistache’s traditional style.

Running to Sunset Park to grab a heavy pack of cakes boxes and bringing it home by train wad kind of a venture too…

Spend an afternoon in Crown Heights to attend the auctions sale of a Jamaican bakery was kind of fascinating…

It means stepping in all the kitchenware stores on Bowery Street in Manhattan to find a cheap and good food container, load it with trays, hotel pans, tongs, and more utensils that make it way too heavy to carry it home.

It means discovering the unknown world of mass consumption, where a gigantic grocery cart is your coach to sugar and flour sold in 20 pounds bags, eggs by 50 pieces, or napkins by 1000…

It means making some unfortunate tests, without being discouraged…

It means having some relaxing manual labor and writing work…

 

It means that you should all come to say “Hi” this saturday, and grab some sweets and savory. This is our big jump, share it with us!

We will be there from 11 am to 7 pm. The Dekalb Market is located at 38 Willoughby Street (@Flatbush Ave), Brooklyn, NY 11201. Trains : B, Q, R to Dekalb Ave, A, C, F & R to Jay St. Metrotech.

This saturday, the Market also hosts a concert, from 3 pm to 9 pm. You might want to come a little earlier to skip the line and the crowd…
