Spring Markets in NYC

April 25, 2022 | 4 min Read

Spring is the perfect time of year to head outside and check out some of New York City’s best markets. From flowers, to greens, to antiques, there’s a market with something for everyone. These are just a few of the many markets that New York has to offer.

Down to Earth Markets

Down to Earth Markets manages two farmer’s markets in Manhattan and several others in various boroughs. Founder Miriam Haas started the company’s first farmer’s market in Ossining, NY in 1991. In the early nineties, farmers were routinely using a chemical spray, Alar, on apples grown in the Hudson Valley. Concerned by the unknown health effects Haas began connecting with farmers who did not use chemicals. Together they began selling chemical-free produce to shoppers at a weekly market.

Today Down to Earth Markets is a mission-driven Certified B Corp., which strives to create opportunities for local farmers and consumers to connect to celebrate food culture and community life.

The Flower District

Better than a single market, the Flower District is a famous tiny stretch of flower markets on the west side of Manhattan. Little boutique florists line 28th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. Each floral shop has a specialty, so check out more than just one to enjoy a unique array of fragrances and colors at affordable prices! When shopping in the Flower District it’s best to arrive early (7am) for the best pick of the day’s flowers.
