Founded in 2005, New Amsterdam Market was held on South Street in Lower Manhattan beginning in 2007. Together with our vendors and followers, we created New York's most innovative local food celebrations while campaigning to preserve and revitalize the Old Fulton Fish Market Tin Building and New Market Building. These two waterfront sheds are the last remnants of a public commons in continuous use since 1642, when this city was called New Amsterdam.
Our vision to transform this irreplaceable asset as a genuine public market dedicated to sustainable food systems met with widespread popular support, but was never embraced by key elected officials. We therefore ended our market at the Seaport in 2014.
Today we seek an appropriate site for our revival. To keep informed, please join our mailing list. We thank you for your interest.
