5 Great Food Markets to Visit Right Now

Categories: Market Watch


There's no doubt: New York is a buyer's market. At least where food is concerned.

Stroll through the souk-like stalls of our city's great markets as you scarf down spicy, chicken pigs-in-blankets from Brooklyn Piggies and a chaser of Grady's Cold Brew, and revel in these first breezes of fall as you chat with vendors. Is that kimchi made with local, seasonal ingredients? Why yes, yes it is! And can you try it? Of course, just ask.

For those who prefer to shop indoors, we've also included a few indoor, brick and mortar markets, full of specialty vendors. And while they might not have the cache of their outdoor counterparts, they are equally stocked with now-that-you-see-it-you-need-it goods (like those buttery but crisp rugelach from Ruthy's).

Here are five of our favorite food markets in NYC right now:

All Good Things
While it would be easy to write off this oversize hallway of a space as merely containing some good things, the recently-opened Tribeca market can actually take care of your weekly grocery list. Pick up a drip-to-order from Blue Bottle Coffee before strolling around the seven other sellers. Worth sampling are the meat-happy offerings at Dickson's Farmstand and the jelly doughnuts filled to order at Orwasher's bakery. 102 Franklin Street (212) 925-5081
