If browsing is more your thing, let's not forget about Fairway, newly renovated and re-opened post-Sandy. I don't know if everyone likes wandering the air conditioned aisles of grocery stores looking for new snack foods as much as I do, but if it is your thing, there's no better place to do it than Fairway. There are also the Red Hook Food Vendors (also known at the "Ballfield Vendors") to be considered, a collection of Latin-American food trucks that have been gathering at the Red Hook Ball Fields on the weekends every summer since 1974 (they stay open from 9am to 9pm).
After all this, we still sort of assume you'll still have room for pastries, yes? Good, because Baked is in the neighborhood and is full of things like whoopie pies, Rice Krispy bars, and homemade marshmallows. There's also Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies, which is perfect, and exactly what it sounds like.
