Our Weekend (food) Guide :: To Market
Sunday Suppers is gearing up for our last days of mild temperatures in NYC. We just know the first frost and snows are soon to come. So in the spirit of the pilgrims and enjoying one last bit of unfrozen outdoors, we’ve rounded up a few weekend destinations.
Grab your canvas grocery bags and your Thanksgiving ingredient list.
The New Amsterdam Market will appear in the South Street Seaport Sunday November 22nd, and its vendors will cover every stuffing, sauce, and pie item your little heart desires. Literally, a cook’s wish list come true—the vendor list includes every seafood, cheese, vinegar, meat, produce, and pickle this side of the Mississippi (or at least a bunch). Great for your Thanksgiving table, hostess gifts, holiday presents, and pre-Christmas planning.
South Street, between Beekman Street and Peck Slip
On the East River waterfront in Lower Manhattan
11:00am to 4:00pm
In the market for produce 5 days before the big one? On the hunt for the ingredients to our Thanksgiving sides? This Sunday Rooftop Farms is hosting another open market for their rooftop produce. Stop by from 10am to 4pm and your weeks vegetables can be checked off the list. Located on Eagle Street between Franklin & West Street (look for their sign!).
Good holiday news for Manhattanites. The excellent taste bestowed on Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Flea Market is borough hopping to Manhattan for another Holiday addition of “Gifted.” You’ll find it on East 4th and Lafayette, with about 50 vendors. Price points high and low, quality and taste always high. Oh, and Lucky Mag will be there too. Happy Holiday shopping—and try not to forget—tis the season to buy for others, not just yourself… Friday 11/27 through Sunday 11/29.
