Lots of New Yorkers are growing their own food on rooftop gardens, in the back of pickup trucks,and in community plots.
But if you’re a shopper, not a planter, then you might want to check out the New Amsterdam Market on South Street in the old Fulton Fish Market space. This farmer’s market has operated sporadically over the past year or so. Now, it’s going monthly, beginning Sunday, Sept. 13. That date happens to coincide with the citywide celebration of Harbor Day / Hudson Fulton Champlain Quadricentennial. I’ve never been in town when the earlier markets were staged, but I’m going to check out the Sept. 13 event.
There’s a complete list of past vendors—ranging from the Sullivan Street Bakery to West County Cider from Colrain, Maine—on the New Amsterdam Market’s web site. Purveyors participating in the fall markets will be posted soon.
Here’s the schedule
- Sunday, September 13
- Sunday, October 25
- Sunday, November 22
- Sunday, December 20
Time: 11:00am to 4:00pm
