New Amsterdam Market Returns This Sunday

Be sure to head a little further downtown on Sunday for the return of the New Amsterdam Market at the South Street Seaport (11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at South Street, between Beekman Street and Peck Slip). The market features over 80 regional artisanal vendors including cheese from Essex Street Market's own Saxelby Cheesemongers.  The Atlantic Food Channel has an article about the revival of the South Street market, which once thrived in the same location back in the mid-1800's. The non-profit organization is "dedicated to reinventing the indoor public market as a civic institution" (as featured in Civil Eats, as well). The inaugural first season of Sundays is coinciding with New York City’s celebration of Harbor Day, which this year honors the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage to our Region in 1609.  Visit the New Amsterdam Market website for a full list of vendors and more info.
