NYC Farmer’s Market With Rural Pricing

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?

Where do you go to get affordable, fresh produce?  Share below!

    I swear I read about this today but I’m hoping I’m wrong and that it can be your special place without the crowds!
    I’d love to go there. We have two farmers markets here in town! A Saturday morning one and a Tuesday afternoon one with live music.

    That’s something for me :). I love visiting farmers’ markets in Amsterdam to get some yummy and fresh fruits and veggies for much lower prices.

      I would love to see your tips on eating healthy for cheap, Agness…something tells me you must have a lot of them!:-)

  • This made me chuckle as we have a very expensive farmer’s market in London called Borough Market – there aren’t that many actual cheap markets so this place must be a godsend for New Yorkers

      Oh I went there on my last trip to London! Such a beautiful market, but you’re right…not cheap! I did get lunch there, which was delicious!
