Cauliflower gnocchi and dark chocolate peanut butter cups will soon be easier to come by in north Brooklyn. As was first reported by Greenpointers, Trader Joe’s will be opening its third location in the borough this year. Currently, the beloved grocer has stores at City Point in Downtown Brooklyn and in Brooklyn Heights. The new outpost will be in Williamsburg at 200 Kent Avenue, a new commercial building between North 2nd and 3rd Streets near the waterfront.

Trader Joe’s has 13 locations throughout New York City–two in Brooklyn, two in Queens, one on Staten Island, and eight in Manhattan. Two other new stores are also set to open soon– one on the Upper East Side, located in the historic Bridgemarket space, and one in a new mixed-use project on 125th Street in Harlem that will also be home to the state’s first civil rights museum.


The full-block building at 200 Kent Avenue wrapped up construction last summer, according to NY Yimby, who also reported that the six-story mixed-use building totals 125,000 square feet. It was developed by Cornell Realty Management and designed by ME Architect P.C. The upper floors will house office tenants, while it’s long been speculated that Trader Joe’s would occupy the retail base. Cushman & Wakefield is handling the leasing and already have Trader Joe’s outlined in their marketing brochure. The store will be located in the cellar level with a street-level entrance.
