This weekend, I expanded my usual Farmer's Market stop to include the New Amsterdam Market on Sunday morning. Held once a month during the fall, the market seeks to "reinvent the public market" and bring together various local vendors including farmers, butchers, bakers and everything in between, creating a lively market full of fresh produce and deliciously prepared goods.
Kate and I arrived early on, but the market quickly became packed. It was a beautiful Sunday and a lovely way to spend the day - lots of things to taste and buy! I came home with cheeses, bison meat, olive oil, bread, garlic, chocolate and more - I really had to restrain myself from buying up the entire place! We also enjoyed plenty of tasty treats while there, including a brisket sandwich, watermelon shave ice, endless cheeses, beet chips, bacon peanut brittle and basil mint iced tea.
The next market will be on October 25 - check out newamsterdammarket.org for more details.
