Specialty foods have returned to grace in recent years. With the latest wellness movement, people are trying everything from gluten-free pizza to reishi mushroom tea. In 2017, it appears kale will be replaced with a host of other food trends to try, including…charcoal? Whether you’re looking for craft beer, fresh fish, or cold pressed juice, Billy’s Marketplace in Ridgewood, New York, is your one-stop shop for high-quality ingredients and gourmet fare.
Top 5 Food Trends in 2017
1. Fresh Meat from the Butcher
Shoppers nowadays are more conscious of sustainable farming practices and the way their food is processed. That’s why butchers have become more popular with meat eaters. More supermarkets are now equipped with butcher stations for convenience.
2. Nutritional Yeast
Often used as a cheese substitute in vegan recipes, nutritional yeast is now popping up in restaurants. At home, it can be sprinkled on popcorn for a nutritional boost.
3. Mustard Greens
Kale is taking a back seat this year to a variety of more sustainable greens, including mustard and beet greens, seaweed, and carrot tops.
4. Exotic Yogurt
If you like yogurt but are trying to avoid cow’s milk, there are now a range of specialty yogurts made from different kinds of dairy, including sheep’s milk, coconut milk, goat’s milk, and even buffalo milk.
Charcoal has recently been an attractive addition to skincare products for its ability to attract dirt, but it is now being added to food for its detoxifying properties, including ice cream!
