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).
