Fulton Stall Market at South Street Seaport

Another outdoor food market opened up in Manhattan - this one in the stalls of the former Fulton Fish Market. Though the Fulton Stall Market is much smaller than the one at Union Square, it does offer a couple of different and interesting vendors.

There was lots of fresh produce from local farms in New Jersey. We couldn't resist buying a head of lettuce (the size of a shopping bag) for $1.50 (or 3 for $3). It was crisp, delicious, and lasted us all week!

Brooklyn Oenology: Wine meets art with these beautifully designed bottles. The wine is from the North Fork of Long Island while the labels are designed by Brooklyn artists. We love the '07 Viognier ($18). It had a floral fragrance and overall medium body. This crisp but round white was refreshing especially on a warm summer's day but still has good body and acidity.

Lots of people line up for Yummy Coffee's fair trade, organic, and locally roasted coffee. What's even better than satisfying your caffeine crave? Knowing that all profits from your purchase go towards the autism community.

CupcakExpress sells their highly rated, homemade cupcakes for $5 each.

Lots of artisan sheep's milk cheese produced by Dancing Ewe Farm. We love the nutty flavor of sheep's milk cheese with the Pecarino Stagionato being our favorite.

The Fulton Stall Market is open Fri and Sat, from 10AM-6PM.
