NYC Food Events for the Weekend
New Amsterdam Market
Sunday, June 29th, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Twice as large as the market they put on at this same location in December, the New Amsterdam Market returns to the South Street Seaport with over 50 purveyors and advocates of the sustainable food movement. Various breads, foraged foods, milk, honeys, vegetables and meats will be available from great local sources. Admission is free, although there is a $5 suggested donation to efforts that will make the market permanent.
