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 :)
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.
