New Amsterdam Market
The third meeting of the the New Amsterdam Market was held today at the South Street Seaport. Even on this scorching day, it was packed with people taking full advantage of the free samples and small bites.
The market had every (high-end) thing from pickles to bread, and from wine to soda. The stand in the picture below was selling small rhubarb popsicles for $4 each.
Even our well documented love of rhubarb couldn’t convince me to shell out $4, though. I did spend a small fortune on a huge loaf of excellent cranberry-pecan bread from Pain d’Avignon in Long Island City, which will make a perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
On a personal note, I’ve finally moved from Harlem to Brooklyn. We should have a post coming up on my new kitchen as soon as I’m unpacked. To everyone who has stuck with Eat through this tumultuous year of 2008: thank you!
