Market Months

New York is chock full of amazing markets in the summer months. Local farmers, purveyors, artists and producers band together in different locations every day of the week to bring the concrete jungle a little bit of the gifts of the great outdoors. Immeasurable physical and social benefits in less than half of a city block, right at your fingertips.

This summer, I've challenged myself to avoid grocery stores. Other than purchasing non-grocery supplies, I haven't set foot in a "real" grocery store since the warm months began to give way to these bountiful outdoor markets. Seasonal, fresh, fruitful... what's not to love? My greatest feelings of accomplishment stem from making a really simple, delicious, amazing meal out of my semi-weekly finds. 


  1. Love these photos! Next time we are in NY, we will definitely have to check some of these out. Thanks for sharing! Xo, M&K at

  2. Love the union square market...used to walk through all the time to and from work, sometimes picking up yummy bread or a bottle of wine for the weekend;)


I love to read all of your comments! Thanks so much!! <3
