The Union Square Greenmarket in NYC

The Union Square Greenmarket in NYC




The Union Square Greenmarket is a trendy spot to shop for fresh goods in New York City. The organic market happens four times per week, regardless of the season. Local producers hit the square to sell bread, cheese, meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, flowers, and many artisanal products.

The selection of products varies according to the season. While you walk through the market don’t miss the chance to taste some samples, many sellers offer them to the visitors. Just taste everything you can, it’s a delight. The products go straight from the hands of the farmers to your house, and that’s a great way to support the local producers.

What to do around the Union Square Greenmarket:

 

Go shopping: There are many shops around Union Square Park. Make sure to visit DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) and Burlington for bargains. The 5th Avenue is also nearby.

Eat more: If the food at the Union Square Greenmarket made you feel hungrier, don’t worry. There are many great restaurants around there to suit all tastes. I recommend Max Brenner and The Coffee Shop, these are some of my favorites in the region.

Feed your intellectual side: The Strand Book Store is located two blocks away from the Union Square Park. The place is amazing, and the sidewalk stalls are filled with used books with tempting prices ($1, $2, $3… For real!).
