New York City may not a place to find many farms, but you’ll have no problem finding delicious goodies from local farms. All you need to do is head to Union Square on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday and you’ll find the Union Square Greenmarket.
You’ll find everything imaginable here: veggies, fruit, poultry, meat, seafood, bread, pastries, desserts, flowers, honey, even wine and liquor. And the best part? They were all procured by a local farm within a day’s drive from New York City. Each day of the week it’s open, you’ll find different farms showcasing their goods. So if you go on Monday, you’ll find some different purveyors there than you would on Wednesday. And since the farms only bring what’s fresh and in-season, everything you’ll find is top quality at the right price. It’s the perfect place to get some groceries or grab a bottle of local NY wine and snacks to enjoy to live like a local when you’re visiting NYC.
