The New Amsterdam Market

The New Amsterdam Market which opens today for the 2011 season, is one of my favorite New York Markets to have popped up in the past several years. It takes place under the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan side, down at the Seaport. I love it for the highly curated group of vendors, the focus on regional, local, sustainably produced foods and for the simple fact that it takes place on a Sunday and I can lazily make my way down there and shop for the weeks meals. Like the Brooklyn Flea or the Smorgasburg they have prepared food ( Luke's Lobster, Porchetta, and People's Pops and Bellocq just to name a few) to eat on the spot. Come hungry and with a big basket!

The Market is Every Sunday from 11-4.

Some of the  vendors rotate and change weekly. Look at the NAM site each week for a current list of that weeks vendors.

The Market is constantly having special events like The Oyster Festival or last year's popular Smorrbrod Festival. They often have events for kids as well, so keep your eyes on their ever changing calendar and get yourself down to the Seaport where you will feel like  you have truly stepped back in time. It is one of the most special locations in the city.
