we're off to spread some love and check out the third installment of New Amsterdam Market.
WHO: New Amsterdam Market gathers over 60 of New York's foremost chefs, bread bakers, farmers, food producers, distributors, purveyors, caterers, and advocates of regional and sustainable food production for a one day market at the South Street Seaport in Lower Manhattan.

WHAT: This impressive group will present an extensive array of local foods for purchase and tasting.
