A few more sunsets until the first Hanukah candle; a few more bedtimes till Santa comes down the chimney…it’s an exciting time of the year, that’s for sure. To keep those excitement levels at a peak, here are a few shindigs both before and after the holidays. For more edible-minded events, be sure to check out the city-wide events calendar kept by Edible Manhattan, our sister publication, right here.
Wintermarket IV at New Amsterdam Market. On Sunday, December 18th from 11 am to 4 pm, celebrate the changing season with 70 vendors, including a special section dedicated to local fisheries, with fresh fish and prepared food for sale. The market is located in Lower Manhattan on South Street between Beekman Street and Peck Slip. The scents of juniper and pine and the ringing of the market bells will be sure to keep you in a festive mood as you shop (and eat).
