Hey New York City Hackers, care to share your favorite places to buy food? Restaurants/produce stands/farmers markets/etc...
Commodities Natural Food Market - in the E. Village on 1st Ave. It's a little Vegan/Grain centric, but they have GREAT produce at low prices, they carry Jones and Niman Ranch meats (not grassfed, but better than SAD), and a host of other great natural foods.
Greene Grape - Park Slope or Ft. Greene, I think? My friend told me about it but I haven't been yet. Apparently all the meat is 100% grassfed, and carcasses are broken down on the premises. Sounds promising, even if only car-accessible.
Whole Foods - They're kind of wishy-washy on the issue of supporting the traditional model of food distribution and farming though?
Union Sq. Farmers Market - of course! But it's so intimidating! Any suggestions about favorite days/booths?
I'm still so new to this, so I'm still trying to find all my reliable sources. I REALLY want to find a good source of RAW MILK!
- Come on New Yorkers! Where ya at?!
