NYC | Sundays at New Amsterdam Market

Sunday, August 12, 2012 4comments No tags Permalink 0

Sunday morning, just before noon. Wake-up, a pot of tea for me and espresso for him. Then, a 15-minute cab ride down to the New Amsterdam Market. It’s completely out of the way, but it’s nice to be close to the water and the cool breeeezzeee ooohh. We buy snacks and drinks, bread and produce from the market. Each Sunday we vow to try different vendors, but we often end up at the same five. Old habits aren’t so bad :)

1. Soda at P&H Soda Co. Lemongrass-Ginger is my all time favorite, though the Grapefruit-Chamomile is pretty wonderful.

2. The Poffertjes Man is technically located at the Fulton Street Market (which is right across the street), but it’s part of our weekly Sunday stop at the New Amsterdam Market. I wrote about these poffertjes on Serious Eats…especially love how the pancakes are finished with a dab of salted butter and powdered sugar.

3. Sullivan Street Bakery – this plush green olive loaf goes with everything. The official name is truccio doni, and tonight, it will be sliced, toasted and topped with a mix of tomatoes, basil, and burrata.

4. Asian eggplants from Z Food Farm. Going to roast these with miso!

5. Heirloom melons, peaches, and watermelons from Flying Fox.

    Where are you getting your burrata? All the ones I've gotten are way too rubbery and have not come close as the ones I've had in Italy.

    Hi Jee! I get it from Murray's and DiPalo's (they make their own in-house 2x a week)!

    So nice to see a post for New Amsterdam Market. I live right by there and absolutely adore this market. First stop for me at the market is at flying fox for whatever fruits she has that week!

    Hi Jeannie! Flying Fox is such a treasure! I wish they also had a stand at the Union Square Greenmarket…I could lug home a suitcase of those melons ^_^
