Starting right now through Feb. 24, you can bid on some great goodies if you log onto the New Amsterdam Public Market auction web site.
Supporters are trying to raise enough money to secure a permanent place for the market, which will feature goods from a range of local and organic purveyors.
Here are some of the food and other items being offered. Most are designed to accommodate large groups:
–a tour of Brooklyn breweries past and present, with Urban Oyster (for groups of 10 or more)
–a kayak trip through oyster beds and marshes, along with a clam bake, with Bluepoint Oyster Co. (6 to 10 friends)
— a simple meal in New York City with Chef Alice Waters (two to four friends)
