New Amsterdam Market

Last Sunday morning I was pleasantly greeted with newly shucked oysters, artisanal cheeses, homemade pastas, organic vegetables, rustic breads, and other coveted specialty foods at the New Amsterdam Market on South Street. With only four markets per season, this wonderful market of delightful fare was overflowing with local residents by noon. Everyone looking for the same thing… the best local produce the tri-state area has to offer.

My favorite vendors were

Basis Foods, selling local produce at affordable prices

Saxelby Cheeses, mouth-watering cheese that will literally melt your pockets (its just that expensive)

The Ravioli Store, dozens of homemade pastas you just can’t pass up

Taza Chocolate, just try their vanilla chocolate rounds-yum!

Porchetta, the best damn pork sandwich out there

The Bent Spoon, all I can say is… Ricotta Ice Cream
