The three-day per week market welcomes four new vendors to its regular lineup. Artisanal olive oil, Italian bruschetta, raw honey, and farm-fresh eggs are now available in addition to locally sourced produce.
The Broadway French Market, operated by Bensidoun USA, recently welcomed some excellent new vendors, enhancing the selection of fine foods at Midtown’s first open-air market.
For some of the best olive oil around, stop by Petropoulos Family Groves. The Petropoulos family grows their own olives in Messinia, Greece using no fertilizer, plant food, or pesticides, and ships the delicious, 100% cold-pressed extra virgin oil right to the market.
You’ll find heavenly pasta sauces and a variety of bruschetta at Sunday Gravy. The flagship product, the Sunday Gravy meat sauce, is a slow braise of succulent beef and pork, sausage and meatballs, simmered with plum tomatoes, garlic and basil. The booth offers various lemonades to cool off with as well.
Honey-lovers will be glad to see their favorite sweet stuff from Honeybrook Farms. Grown in the Hudson Valley, this is 100% pure, raw, unprocessed, uncooked, strained only, local honey - direct from the beehive. There’s also a new vendor offering the freshest eggs and dairy products.
Broadway French Market, located on Broadway Boulevard between 35th and 36th Streets, operates Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 11:30am-6:00pm, through October 31.
And don’t forget that Bensidoun USA also operates the Penn Plaza French Market at Park East on Wednesdays, 11:30am-5:00pm. There are 12 stalls in all, with a rotating array of vendors offering produce and other ingredients for dinner, as well as ready-to-eat treats for lunchtime.
