On Thursday lunch time I met up with my new Aussie friend just outside Diane Von Furstenburg on Washington Street to explore the new temporary UrbanSpace Meatpacking Market – a market of goodies and trinkets, crafts and glorious food!
As I waited for Miss H, who had ended up a little off course at the Chelsea Market, I noted the inordinate number of women/girls around with legs up to their ears, toothpick jeans and hair tumbling down to their waists (Models.... so cliché...) and realised it was the afternoon of Fashion’s Night Out. These spindly legs did not however, deter me from eating our way through the market. The roast vegetable and goat’s cheese bruschetta was amazing, as was the Mexican Chilli Chocolate ice-cream (my choice) and the vegan coffee and cinnamon ice-cream (Miss H’s choice) from Steve’s ice creamery.
The market on the corner of Washington Street and 13th Street, has, in addition to great food choices, some cute little stores with tasteful New York souvenirs, clothing and jewelry. The market is open 7 days a week. A trip here is the perfect addition to a visit to the Highline Park (a NY must-do) and Chelsea Market.
