The New Amsterdam market has established itself as a monthly market at South Street Seaport. It returns this Sunday, September 13 in conjunction with a celebration of Henry Hudson. I am all for more open food markets in the city. I visited this one when it was held one day last summer and tried samples of razor clams and soups and breads. It was a really nice combination of vendors selling produce and those selling prepared foods or other edible goods. It was also where I first tried People's Pops, an interesting local popsicle operation. If you get a chance, I'd recommend checking it out.
