Explore a Nearby Farmers’ Market

Grocery shopping might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of having a good time. But the East Village apartments at EVGB are close to some wonderful farmers’ markets—and summer is the best time to go alfresco shopping for everything from artisan bread to organic cider and cut flowers. In fact, we think you’ll love picking up ingredients at these three Manhattan farmers’ markets.

Stuyvesant Town Greenmarket (Sundays)

Sundays are often when you wind up doing the grocery shop, so why not make it fun by swinging by Stuyvesant Town Greenmarket? After just a three-minute stroll from EVGB’s luxury rentals, even those in the laziest of moods can muster up the energy to peruse the stalls here. And what an array of produce they have to offer: stock up on organic vegetables and herbs from Jersey Farm Produce, source fresh cut blooms from Luna Family Farm to bring a splash of Sunday color to your apartment, and—seeing as it’s the weekend—treat yourself to a crumbly croissant or blueberry muffin from Wave Hill Breads.

Tompkins Square Greenmarket (Sundays)

Just five minutes in the other direction from EVGB, you’ll discover another top-rate Sunday farmers’ market; Tompkins Square is packed between 9 am and 4 pm each week (and year-round) with a dazzling cornucopia of produce. You can pick up all the bits and pieces you need here for a sumptuous Sunday meal at your East Village apartment: select a juicy cut of grass-fed beef from Stone & Thistle Farm, make dessert a scrummy pecan tart from Meredith’s Bread, and round it all off with a mouthwatering cheeseboard, courtesy of Valley Shepherd. A show-stopping feast—and all five minutes from your door!

Union Square Greenmarket (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays)

While Stuyvesant Town and Tompkins Square have you set for Sundays, Union Square Greenmarket has your foodie needs covered for most other days. As NYC’s largest greenmarket, it boasts up to 140 stalls on its north and west plazas for four days of the week—offering pretty much any kind of groceries you can think of. Aside from the lineup of freshly plucked fruits, veg, and herbs; flowers; award-winning farmstead cheeses; and organic wines, this greenmarket is also a hub of superlative dining options. Once you’ve picked up your groceries, why not treat yourself to a reviving beverage from FIFTYLAN Bubble Tea, a chicken Milanese from Union Square Cafe, or a ricotta pie pizza from Freehold in the Park? After all, you can’t be expected to cook all the time.
