Sunday – New Fall Day; New Adventure: New Amsterdam Market!


Ok, so I hope I am not wearing you guys out with these fun market excursions – of course, how would that even be possible? Good eats, good times, good souvenirs? – its a no brainer!

So, for Sunday, I have another market place to explore which is the New Amsterdam Market, located in Manhattan on South Street, between Beekman Street and Peck Slip. It is right next to the famous Fulton Fish Market, at 100 Peck Slip, Lower Manhattan. The market will be open from 11AM-4PM EST, rain or shine (though I think the day is supposed to be beautiful!) and the Indefinite Transit team is going to try to get there at least by 12PM to get some more filming done …. and eat some great food!

 

Matt Lindenmulder and his friend Chef Sebastian were great sports with all of our filming needs and they really served it up some great Porchetta sandwiches yesterday at the Brooklyn Flea Market. So, because we couldn’t get enough of them, we are following are friends from Porchetta once again, to their second market place of the weekend. I had one of their delicious sandwiches today and it was so good! My brother Stefano is in town and that boy loves his pork.

The main difference between the BK Flea Market and the New Amsterdam Market is that the latter is primarily dedicated to food. I have never been, so I am excited to check it out. Obviously I am a big fan of markets – mainly because I think they are very telling of a city and its pace.

According to the New Amsterdam Market’s website, they look to promote “regional economic development…supporting small businesses dedicated to creating local food systems and to reviving the thriving, equitable culture of the urban public marketplace.” What is cool, is that the South Street neighborhood has been a market district since 1642. The legacy continues today.

Well amen to that, no?

From what I could count on their website, there will be a plethora of different food stands selling options like cheese, to cider, to chocolate. What more could you want? Here is the list of the vendors for October 10th, 2010:
