People in New York City love their fresh-foods and even though they have ever occasion to want to eat out virtually anywhere, there are still occasions when getting the stuff farm fresh is the only way. Residents of Boerum Hill were pleased to hear that the newest addition to area farmers markets, Foodshed, recently opened its year round doors.
According to the blog bococaland.com (1) the Atlantic Avenue located market is “open every Sunday from 11:00-5:00.” This place has all kinds of the farmers markets usual suspects including “fresh vegetables and fruit, meats, milk and eggs.” Foodshed will also have many site specific items from “regional vendors offering ‘added-value’ products like cheeses, yogurt, ice-cream, jams, honey, sauces and salsas, milled grains, breads and baked goods, pickles and other healthy ferments, juices, ciders, wines and beers.”
Wow. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, it’s fair to ask what will.
“The new market will be run in support of The Commons, a community and educational center, and promises the likes of dry-aged Angus beef from Drover Hill Farm in Earlville, New York; Flour City Pasta, a product line from Fairport NY; and organic dairy from Milk Thistle Dairy Farm.”
So what are you waiting for?
