Markets 2.0 Event Recap by The Experimental Gourmand

I want to thank everybody who came to the New York Public Library’s Mid-Manhattan Branch for the event last Thursday, Markets 2.0: The Resurgence of Traditional Markets in New York City. We were hoping for a crowd of 50, and we ended up with 89 wonderful, engaged people in the audience!

The talented and dedicated food blogger Kathy Blake, aka The Experimental Gourmand, wrote an excellent, detailed summary of the event!  If you couldn’t make it, Kathy’s posting will tell you everything you missed and more!

My heartfelt thank you to Robert LaValva of the New Amsterdam Market and Ron Castellano of the Hester Street Fair for their fascinating and valuable insights into their markets.  Thanks as well to SuChin Pak, who could not be with us because she was called away on some exciting business that we’ll hopefully all be hearing about very soon!  And a sincere thank you to Ms. Deborah Hirsch, Principal Librarian of the Mid-Manhattan Branch of the NYPL, for her kindness, thoroughness, and enthusiasm for this event!
