New Amsterdam Market June 27th

The season is upon is! The New Amsterdam Market season that is. This Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm purveyors, farmers, foragers, bakers and cheese mongers (and many more artisanal foodie types) come together to sell their wares at the South Street Seaport (Peck Slip and South Street in front of the New Market building, which actually isn't so new it was built in 1939).

I went many times last year and have to say it is a wonderful way to graze your way through a Sunday while at the same time pick up some great groceries for the week!

The South Street Seaport area has historically been a market area the goal of the New Amsterdam folks is to once again establish a full time market in this historic 'hood.

For more edification on the market listen to Anne Saxelby's interview on Heritage Radio with the founder and director of the Market Robert LaValva on her show Cutting the Curd.
