New York City: Union Square Farmer's Market

• 20 October 2009

It's so good to know that even if you live smack dab in the middle of Manhattan, you still have access to straight-from-the-farm goodness at local farmer's markets, like the one at Union Square. What an outstanding event it is! There were so many amazing offerings, some of which I've never seen before at markets in San Francisco or in France. It was a fun place to stop by when we visited NY recently for a wedding (a few pictures forthcoming).

While you're in the area, make sure you stop by the fabulous and famous ABC Carpet & Home as well as Fishs Eddy. There are also some great vendors between the farmer's market and these shops. I found a lovely cashmere blend scarf for $5 along the way and I realize, given the price, that the % of cashmere in the scarf is fairly low, but it's so pretty and soft that I don't really care! If you're feeling budget-conscious, try one of the many gyro stands in the area and treat yourself to an inexpensive lunch. We thought they were some of the best we've had in the US. Add a $1 fresh-squeezed lemonade and you'll be set!

Beautiful photos!I would expect New York to have an amazing market given all the cultures. San Francisco's farmers market leans towards nor cal farms and the only different culture that seems to be represented here is Hispanic.
Have you ever been to the market place in Barcelona?? That one puts most French markets to shame, and that is saying something. I was very impressed.
