New Amsterdam Market Stretches Out

Shandakan Bake's Craig Thompson offered heart-shaped cookies in two flavors, as well as "trail bars" of shortbread, caramel and coconut.

The proprietors of Brooklyn’s Liddabit Sweets were thrilled to have a cool-weather market to sell chocolates and candies made from local ingredients.

A strange thing happened yesterday at the New Amsterdam Market. The artisan food fair that’s slowly but steadily gained momentum as a premier destination shopping spot for sustainable, seasonal, local goods near the seaport in three years of Sundays saw some unusual customers: Wall Streeters showed up in suits to peruse the wares.
