In the past few years, food halls and markets have practically taken over the New York food scene. If you want to try the trend without all the chaos, check out the new Bowery Market, located at the corner of Bowery and Great Jones (348 Bowery).
Though it comes in at a tiny 1000 square feet total and hosts just five vendors, the Bowery Market is a hipster foodie dream. With vendors like Sushi on Jones, Alidoro (Italian sandwiches), Champion Coffee (the artisinal coffee from Greenpoint, Brooklyn), Pulqueira (fancy tacos and deceptively strong cocktails), and the Butcher’s Daughter (fresh juice, avocado toast, other Instagram-friendly foods), you can fill your belly with all the latest food trends.
Even if you’re not into “trendy” foods, there is something for every palate here. Sip a giant pina colada out of a frozen pineapple, munch on a sandwich of fresh Italian meats and cheeses, or just grab a latte from one of the best coffee houses in the city.
This tiny market was built into an old auto body garage and though it is technically set up as an outdoor venue, the vendors are safe and snug in individual kiosks, so the market will be open all year round. Check it out seven days a week from 8 in the morning to 9 at night.
