The Brooklyn Market hosted its second annual Thanksgiving dinner on Friday.

The Brooklyn Market gave back to the Bay Ridge community and its patrons by preparing  more than 40 whole turkeys for its second annual Thanksgiving dinner on Friday, November 18.

The business hosted its early Thanksgiving meal outside of its store, located at 8102 Third Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The team at The Brooklyn Market welcomed all community members to join their holiday feast, which included a variety of food, from turkey and ham to candied yams and vegetables.

Ahmed Asmar, one of the shop’s managers, said it’s important to give back to the customers and for the less fortunate who don’t get to have a Thanksgiving dinner. He also noted some homeless attendees whom he never saw before.

Shopper Tabitha Enrique, 30, said she really appreciates The Brooklyn Market for hosting the event.

“I think it’s awesome that they’re giving back to the community,” she said. “I came last year and the food was delicious so I was really looking forward to this day.”

The food took five days to prepare, according to Asmar.

In addition to the food, The Brooklyn Market gave out vendor samplings, coupons and giveaways.
