New Amsterdam Market, rooted in a 2005 Slow Food USA market event celebrating local and regional bounty, has evolved into a weekly market of regional purveyors and other food entrepreneurs held in the Lower Manhattan's East River Market District, whose origins can be traced to 1642. New Amsterdam Market supports regional agriculture, responsible sourcing, and an emerging economy of small businesses.
