Tucked away right in front of the Old Fulton Fish Market lies the New Amsterdam Market. I went last year as the season was ending. This time it was much bigger and full of people. Located right near Pier 18 in downtown Manhattan. This market has a mixture of farms and local food stalls. It's every Sunday from 11-4. After you try a wide variety of yummy treats from the market you can walk to the waterfront and watch all the boats and the busy NYC waterways. Bask in the sun and relax. I am becoming more and more obsessed with outdoor food markets where I can get a taste of everything, as opposed to sitting in a restaurant.

I tried two different food spots while I was here. I had a grilled cheese with the addition of swiss chard from the people of Morris grilled cheese. They actually use a real grill so the flavors are dynamite.
After, I had a lovely shaved ice from people's pops. They freshly shave an ice block right in front of you, then drizzle it with homemade syrups. I had a combination of Rhubarb and Plum. Fantastic for a hot summers day. Addicted. They also had fruit pops which I want to try.
