Markets of New York City


“This project started with a conversation with Human Resources and a ticket to Paris.

I had been working at American Express developing business in Europe. Lo and behold, my role moved to London, and I stayed in New York (hence the meeting with HR). It was a good thing though – I was excited about the possibilities ahead! But first my husband and I redeemed all our Membership Rewards points and headed straight to Paris with a beautiful guidebook in hand, Markets of Paris.

We explored that city in a brand new way, eating most of our meals at the wonderful Parisian farmers markets. As we wandered, we started to wonder what kinds of markets New York had to offer beyond our beloved greenmarket at Abingdon … Read the rest

Brooklyn Feed

“I’m a photographer living in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, daughter and 3 chickens. I’m learning as I go about gardening, composting and raising chickens for eggs in an urban environment. Living a more sustainable life in an environment where it is easy to be out-of-touch with nature is a challenge we are undertaking as a family.”

Smitten Kitchen

“The Smitten Kitchen, in its latest physical incarnation is a 42 square foot (whimper) circa-1935 sort of half-galley kitchen with a 24 foot footprint, a single counter, tiny stove, checkered floor and a noisy window at the end to the avenue below.

What you’ll see here is: A lot of comfort foods stepped up a bit, things like bread and birthday cakes made entirely from scratch and tutorials on everything from how to poach an egg to how to make tart doughs that don’t shrink up on you, but also a favorite side dish (zucchini and almonds) that takes less than five minutes to make.”
