The New Amsterdam Market is a gem in the dense food world of New York City. Located on South Street & Peck Slip of Lower Manhattan, the market boasts a beautiful range of vendors in a setting that sends you back centuries, when industrialization was a new concept, and people took to the streets to scour for their goods. Founded in 2005, the market filled a gap in the neighborhood to promote small businesses and regional farmers and vendors, enhancing the community and our palates. When you visit, expect to find a fine selection of fresh, smoked fish to the products of an apiary habit (local raw honey to pollen) to rich New York-bottled wines from long-established organizations and so much more including season fresh and local fruits and vegetables. There are always events to enjoy as well ranging from a Smorgasbord (or as they authentically promote, SMØRREBRØD) & Beer Garden afternoon hosted by the consulate of Denmark to Sunday Flapjack Breakfasts benefitting local hunger programs. The quality is never lacking, the mood never hampered, and a NYU student-founded bike delivery organization will gladly tricycle your finds to a drop-off location of your choice if you are so inclined.
Check it out, be inspired!
