The grocer, which focuses on organic and artisanal goods, will take over the storefront formerly occupied by Western Beef, which closed at the end of last year, and plans to open in the summer, according to brokers Lee & Associates NYC.

Brooklyn Fare opened in 2009 with its first location at 200 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn, and later opened outposts in the West Village and Hudson Yards, the last of which is also home to the three Michelin-starred eatery Chef’s Table.

Brad Schwarz, JP Sutro and Morris Dweck of Lee NYC represented both sides in the deal.
