The place to be for everything Puerto Rico without leaving New York. If you are curious or are familiar with Puerto Rican Products, culture and cuisine, this is the place for you. Located in Brooklyn, who knew that a shortcut to Puerto Rico existed right in our backyard.
You will find every thing you need here- from rare fruits and spices to Caribbean sauces and Asian noodles... the selections range from Latino (mexican, puerto rican, dominican, venezuelan, etc.) to Haitian and generic American groceries.
Essex Market is an indoor market with a bunch of vendors, some in stalls and some in the same open space. The Porto Rico stall while not as comprehensive as their other shops is still great for a fresh coffee and supplies.
