Sunday’s New Amsterdam Market is a healthy showcase for artisanal and local food purveyors


NA_sandwichThe New Amsterdam Market is not your neighborhood farmer’s market. First, it’s not about the farmers. It’s about the purveyors: the pickle briner, the cheese monger, the gelato artisan, and the expert butcher. Each month hundreds of hand-picked food vendors, all from within 200 miles of NYC, come together for this specialty market in the South Street Seaport area, just in front of the former Fulton Street Fish Market. The next one is this Sunday, October 25.

Robert LaValva, the visionary behind this covered market concept, is both an urban historian and a sustainable food advocate. When the Fulton Fish Market closed, he saw a need for New York to have a venue similar to London’s popular Borough Market. LaValva hopes that his occasional market will become a permanent fixture.

NewAmsterdamThe vendor list changes slightly each month, and often there’s a theme. This Sunday’s market is focused on the art of butchering, so vegetarians beware that you might come face to face with Wilbur the pig among the scads of veggie vendors.

MARKET HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Queens County Farm: It’s the only working historical farm in the New York City limits. You can purchase its produce here and ask about a farm visit for next weekend.
  • Sweet Deliverance: Owner Kelly Geary can turn your CSA share into meals. Sample her prepared food at the Sweet Deliverance booth.

TIPS:

  • Bring a canvas tote to cart home your new pantry of goods. You might also want to bring a cooler bag if you plan on stocking up on frozen meats and cheeses.
  • Arrive hungry! Many vendors sell tapas-sized prepared foods, perfect for frequently sampling.

The New Amsterdam Market is located at South Street, between Beekman Street and Peck Slip, Lower Manhattan, 11:00–4:00, www.newamsterdammarket.org. The next New Amsterdam Market is November 22nd.
