Before New York there was New Amsterdam, whose domain - the New Netherlands - included not only what became New York State, but also New Jersey, Vermont, and western Massachusetts and Connecticut. The market, held in a magnificent Beaux-Arts portico designed by McKim, Mead, and White, will feature artisanal cheeses, wines, pickles and preserves, heirloom apples and hand crafted ciders, grass- fed meats, pastured poultry and more from the far corners of New Amsterdam's former hinterlands. Market vendors and NYC chefs will also sell tasting plates made with seasonal, regional ingredients.
