Photo of the Day – August 19, 2010: New Amsterdam Market
This Sunday is the last monthly New Amsterdam Market of the summer. But don’t despair: starting next month, the market will be back by popular demand on a weekly basis!
There are two very special and delicious events going on this weekend at the market on Sunday:
Ice Cream Festival: Featuring six amazing artisanal ice cream and sorbet makers: The Bent Spoon, Roberta’s, Early Bird Cookery, Marlow & Daughters, MilkMade Ice Cream, and Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream. Tickets for this tasty event are $20 (including copious servings), and the proceeds go towards supporting the market
Tomato Fest: A special event to support the New York City Food Systems Network, an membership organization “working toward universal access to nourishing, affordable food.” They are promising a dazzling array of tomatoes to taste at the peak of ripeness. Tickets to this special event are also $20, but if you buy tickets to both, it is only $35 total.
