Some Things to Amuse You While I Go Eat BonBons


I’m taking a few late summer days off before the fall season starts.  In my absence, I invite you to explore the postings on the site and read about the amazing people, places and things at the markets.

Please mark your calendar for this event next week:


Join us for this panel event at the New York Public Library Mid-Manhattan Branch featuring SuChin Pak of the Hester Street Fair and Robert LaValva of the New Amsterdam Market, moderated by yours truly.  It’s going to be a fascinating look inside this wonderful movement in the city. Thursday, September 1 at 6:30 PM.

And now, here are a few things for you to amuse yourself with while I’m reading cookbooks and guidebooks on the sofa, and munching on peach ricotta crostini:

100 Images: Markets of New York City

Featuring the people, products and events in the markets over the last year.

Saturday Afternoon at the Hester Street Fair

I love love love how this video captures the spirit of this wonderful market on the Lower East Side. Love the song too (Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side by the Magnetic Fields) – it’s on my “River Running” playlist.

This is just the funniest dog video. Poor sweet boy.

I think 56M of the 57M views are mine.


I’ll be back soon!  In the meantime, let me know what you found and ate at the Markets of New York City!
