The Best of New York City's Farmers Markets

As the weather turns warmer, farmers markets will start to fill with fruit and vegetable farmers selling their products.

The markets, though, don’t just specialize in seasonal produce. Here in New York City, many of the 46 different markets (click here for locations and days) are open year-round, offering a constant supply of foods like bread, milk, cheese, eggs and honey.

The market system here in New York is truly special, considering that some states have trouble finding enough farmers to adequately meet the public’s demand for quality food.

Starting next week I will occasionally profile my favorite farmers and foods. The first post will be about the cheese from Bobolink Dairy, which I think is one of the best products available in New York City farmers markets.
