The New Amsterdam Market Pops Up for Summer

After a dispute with the City Council about the fate of the Fulton Fish Market, the New Amsterdam Market came back yesterday for summer, with 70+ locally-minded vendors selling everything from cheese to maple syrup, raisins dried on the vine to seasonal produce, from fresh-caught fish to cold-brewed coffee.

Good Bread: New Amsterdam Market's Bread Pavilion

The New Amsterdam Market was a slice of bread heaven last Sunday. Fifteen of the city's best bakeries offered a dizzying array of delicious loaves, many of them created just for this event.

Finns haven't had to eat pine bark bread for more than a century, but the taste for rye loaves remains at the core of their culinary life.

On Sunday over 50 vendors--butchers, bakers, wine makers, restaurants, and more--gathered under the FDR Drive on South Street on the grounds of the original South Street Seaport for the latest edition of the New Amsterdam Market.
