New Amsterdam Market was first held at the New York City Municipal Building on October 2, 2005. Our mission, then as now, is to support sustainable food systems, regional economies, & fair trade through an emerging small business community.

The Vision for the Seaport

In December 2007, we moved to the site of New York City's oldest commons, on the East River waterfront in Lower Manhattan --where public trade has been conducted since 1642. For seven years, the market grew at this location while championing the preservation and adaptive reuse of the Old Fulton Fish Market, an endangered and irreplaceable city-owned icon.

A massive expression of public support is now needed for this vision to be fulfilled. If you endorse the Vision for the Seaport, let us know here; we will submit this list of supporters to Mayor Bill de Blasio and Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
