New Amsterdam Market’s beautifully and carefully curated online auction has just gone live! If you live on the Northeastern seaboard (or if you would travel to there in order to, say, make charcuterie with Matthew Weingarten), please take a look. And then, make a bid.
This auction is worth your while not just because it supports the efforts to secure a covered, public setting to hold a monthly market in New York City, building a new community of purveyors, whose common goal is to pioneer environmentally and socially responsible food production, but also because of its emphasis on experiential learning. When was the last time you saw “You too can birth a lamb!” on an auction list?
[Also, if you are going to be in NYC this Saturday, you can attend their live, in-person fundraising event FOUNDED ON OYSTER SHELLS. For more information, and tickets, click here.)
