Your Guide to the Best Artisan, Farmer, Food & Flea Markets

Food Markets

The indoor and outdoor food markets throughout New York City are at the heart of food innovation, the new go-to spots for food lovers. Imagine a sumptuous, buttery fresh lobster roll, or a brick oven pizza. Or maybe something exotic, like an authentic pupusa, a small corn tortilla filled with savory beans and cheese, or a spicy kimmchi dog. Follow up your main course with three mini-cupcakes in flavors you have probably never imagined, like lavender chocolate, maple bacon and blueberry port mascarpone. These gastronomic delights – and so many more – are made locally or regionally with the freshest ingredients available.
