“Markets of New York City” Hits the Stores!
Ah, May 11th – the day I’ve been anticipating for such a long time! It was the official release date for Markets of New York City: A Guide to the Best Artisan, Farmer, Food, and Flea Markets!
It was worth the wait.
James and I set out in the morning with the camera to go visit the book in some nearby bookstores. We walked on the High Line to Posman Books in Chelsea Market first. (We are holding the book launch party there on May 11, featuring foods from some of the wonderful Chelsea Market shops and handmade crafts from five wonderful market artisans.) We were a bit early, and the store wasn’t open yet, but we could see the book right near the register. Very exciting!
Next we headed to the Barnes & Noble store at 5th and 18th. The book was in the front window of the store, on 5th Avenue! It doesn’t get much better than that. I’m pretty sure the bookstore staff never saw two people more excited about a new release than me and James. Then we raced over to the Barnes & Noble on Union Square, where the book was in excellent company on the shelf with so many wonderful travel books about New York City. The Barnes & Noble staff was so kind and nice, and they totally made my day!
I have to thank The Little Bookroom for making this day even possible, not to mention the 40+ markets and 200+ market vendors who happily participated in this project. And a special thanks to all my family, friends, and wise advisors, many of whom I met at the markets. And most of all, to James, who is my inspiration for pretty much everything fun and good in our lives.
I’ll see you at the markets!
