Elliniki Agora Fruit & Veg – 30th Ave Fruit Market
Welcome To Elliniki Agora Fruit & Veg – 30th Ave Fruit Market!
Bobby Kartsagoulis helped to set up Elliniki Agora Fruit and Vegetable (otherwise known as the 30th Avenue Fruit Market) in 1972. This was the first fruit shop along 30th Ave. He had moved to the USA from Greece in 1963, living first in Canada before he moved to New York.
The store sells fruit, vegetables and nuts, primarily from the US: from California, Georgia and Florida. Bobby’s own favorite fruit is oranges. “They were everywhere in Sparta,” he says. “They are the king of fruit.”
