Ice Cream Fanatics: The New Amsterdam Market’s 3rd Annual Ice Cream Sunday is Aug. 19. If you’re in NYC, stop by for ice cream from some great purveyors—plus, I’ll be signing (and selling) copies of my book, Ice Cream: A Global History.

The event’s from 12pm-4pm. I’ll be perched in a booth amongst the ice cream folks signing books from 1:30pm-3:30pm. Probably won’t have a whole lot of time to sample the ice cream. So…I hope someone brings me a few tastes.

Here’s who’s scooping and the scoop on tickets, hours, etc.

New Amsterdam Market Goes Monthly Starting Sept. 13

North Fork, LI farm stand

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

The First Annual NYC Chowder Slam is Set for March 21

The First Annual NYC Chowder Slam is being held at Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village.  I have never had a good chowder in New York, but maybe these particular soups  will rise to the occasion.   And, it’s all for a good cause–to support New Amsterdam Market, which is trying to get enough funds together to create a year-round market for grocers, mongers, and other purveyors of local food.

Here are the details:

Saturday, March 21
12 noon-5 pm
Jimmy’s No. 43
43 East 7th Street
New York, NY

Join us for for a day of tasting chowders of varied exciting influences, tall tales and chalices of brew.
Call for cooks, eaters, press….
$20 at the door will benefit New Amsterdam Market, a local organization promoting our region’s agriculture and building a new community of purveyors, whose common goal is to pioneer environmentally and socially responsible food production: www.newamsterdammarket.org
Professional, burgeoning professional, and swarthy seafaring cooks will be sharing maritime delights + Jimmy’s No.43 will have a strong selection of New England craft beers.
Happy Clams!
