Village Voice's Description
There should really be an asterisk here, with a note that South Street Seaport is not just for tourists anymore. In addition to regional farmers, New Amsterdam Market is home to dozens of local bakers, distributors, chefs, ice cream makers, and other specialty vendors selling artisanal prepared foods. The space evokes an old-world market (i.e. sellers might actually remember your name -- or at least what you bought from them). The stands change annually but this year's group includes dairy and meat from Finger Lake Farms, philanthropically-minded baked goods from Hot Bread Kitchen and "bean to bar" chocolates from Mast Brothers. And don't be intimidated by the line that seems to be perpetually running around her Flying Fox stall: Maggie Nescuir's hand-picked fruits are well worth the wait. --Mallory Stuchin
Tips from foursquare
This market features local charcuterie, pickles, and more—we love the porchetta sandwiches from Porchetta and the shrimp rolls from Luke's Lobster.
Mark your calendar for holiday food shopping at the Thanksgiving (Nov 21) and Christmas (Dec 19) markets.
Two Words: LONESTAR TACO.
Find Lonestar Taco and get yourself a bean & cheese and a carnitas. Grab a bench on the water and be grateful you're in NYC.
If you’re a foodie, this seasonal market is a MUST. Weekly market season opens May 1, 2011. Most vendors give out free samples too!
