Labay is a fantastic Black-owned neighborhood market in Flatbush. It stocks mainly Caribbean imports - many from the owner Big Mac’s family’s 60-acre estate in Grenada - such as breadfruit, sea moss, soursop, callaloo, jackfruit or tamarind pickle, ground provisions (green bananas, plantain, sweet, cassava), sorrel, Grenadian chocolates, and island spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, chandon beni, pimento peppers, and utensils ranging from wooden lélé (swizzle) sticks to dutch pots. Mac’s sister Margaret also cooks up traditional foods such as breadfruit, fish and oil down on most weekends.
