About Glatt Mart

In 1977, Mendy Bauman revolutionized the kosher butcher shop concept in Brooklyn with his innovative idea of a self-serve butcher. Back in the 70s, Brooklynites would go to their local kosher butcher, and he would hack off a slab of meat for them. Nothing was pre-sliced, prepackaged, or pre-priced. Mendy changed all that with his butcher shop Glatt Mart. Over four decades later, Glatt Mart is a successful kosher grocery store with a bakery and butcher section. Mendy’s son Dov grew up in the store; he was seven when Glatt Mart opened, and now he owns it.
When Glatt Mart expanded to a grocery store in the 80s, they ensured they paid the same care and attention to kashrus and quality that they had been paying to their meats. A mashgiach on the premises checks certain produce items, such as lettuce, parsley, cilantro, scallions, leaks, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower. The fish is sourced from Ossies, and while salmon is very popular, people were also pleased with the choice to make pre-prepared sushi available for customers.
In 2017, Glatt Mart renovated and added a bakery section. The bakery items are sourced from Glicks, and some of the bakery items are made on the premises. The freshly baked challahs are very popular come Shabbos. There’s a glass showcase with over 20 different varieties of pre-prepared meals and pre-seasoned meats; It’s perfect for during the weak when you don’t have the energy to cook. However, if you want to cook, that option is there too with their grocery section. Each section has weekly specials, making items affordable despite the high quality. They also cater events and offer delivery.
Other items are available, but Glatt Mart still specializes in high-quality kosher meat. Still the innovators, they were offering kosher charcuterie and jerky before it was cool. Salami, pastrami, and even kielbasa is available in the deli section. Manager Ira Sina runs the butcher department, which still gets its meat from the same small Star K shechita in Baltimore that Mendy sourced his meat from all those years ago. Glatt Mart prides itself on making sure their meat selection is the highest level of kashrus; people trust Glatt Mart’s meat for all the right reasons. If they get a popular rib steak, lamb, veal, or poultry from Glatt Mart, they know it will come out just right.
Glatt Mart was the first kosher supermarket in Flatbush to get self-checkout. Dov took out one register and was able to add four self-checkout stations. So far, people love it! It makes shopping easy because people can get in and out quickly.
Mendy couldn’t have known back in 1977 that Glatt Mart would become what it is today, but if he did, he would be proud, and rightfully so. The kashrus and quality have never faltered, and the store continues to be as innovative as it was in the 70s.
