Good Sunday Markets?
Hi all - new to the board here.
I'll be up in NYC this weekend staying on the southern part of the upper east side. On Sundays I like to hit open air markets, in particular farmers markets sprinkled w/artisans, etc. to just walk around, take in the atmosphere, and find something cool (like an artisan cheese, soap, or odd spice) to take home.
Any suggestions given where I'm staying? I'm a DC guy so I'm not too familiar with NY, but more familiar than a stranger (go to the city about 1x year).
SoHo that morning is another option as we're eating brunch down there.
The greenmarket at Tompkins Square Park (Ave A and 7th Street) is open on Sunday year-round. It's small but worth checking out if you're in the neighborhood. The greenmarket won't be open on Sunday in Union Square, but the seasonal Christmas market will be open. It's all craft and artisan's work, (not much food) but quite nice. Soho's streets will be filled with street vendors.
