I love the idea of a city farmer’s market…supporting small businesses, eating fresh and local, and cheaper pricing than Whole Foods. Except that last one I didn’t always find to be true at some of the Manahattan markets, which was always a bummer (those berries are HOW much?!) Until I discovered Stiles Farmers Market in Midtown West, i.e. the ONLY place I’m getting my fruits, veggies, and fresh bread from here on out.
It’s not huge, but it has all the in-season necessities to put together a great dish, and is covered in case of rain, snow, or generally awful NYC weather. And it’s truly FOR REALS affordable…on a recent visit, I scored all these goodies for $12–the bread alone at Whole Foods would have cost $6!
Another bonus? If you spend over $5 they take credit cards, so you don’t have to worry about having cash on hand during your trips. Stiles is for sure the best deal in Manhattan I’ve found in my 10 years of living and eating and shopping, what about you?
