About Other Shop Local Projects

Shop Brooklyn: Shop Brooklyn is Borough President Marty Markowitz' campaign for local residents and visitors, emphasizing service and individuality in Brooklyn's neighborhoods and shopping corridors. The initiative has forged strategic partnerships with Business Improvement Districts, Merchant Associations, and Local Economic Development Organizations throughout Brooklyn to showcase independently owned businesses with added-value marketing efforts and educational outreach.

Join the 3/50 Project: A national "shop local" project, 3/50 asks that consumers pick three independently owned businesses and spend $50 each month.

The New York City Restaurant Industry Roundtable is a gathering of restaurant owners and workers who encourage restaurants take the “high road” to profitability, by valuing their workers with proper pay, training and promotion practices. In collaboration with The Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC NY), they have produced "If You Care, Eat Here: The NYC Diner's Guide to High Road Restaurants". Check out their website to access consumer resources on restaurants with commendable employee, environmental and community practices.  One of their featured restaurants Comida – is located in our community.
