Union Square Park in NYC is usually bustling with markets, street performers, skateboarders, sidewalk chess, food trucks, and not a moment of silence or peace... until you take a quiet walk with Gandhi through the magnolia trees.
The real heart of the New York Markets can be found at the daily Farmer Markets located throughout the boroughs & city. It's a great place to check out all the fresh locally made items from faraway from New Jersey, Upstate New York & Western Massachusetts. It's a great place to shop for flowers, jams, honeys, wheat grass, produce, meats & fish. Definitely worth your time to get the best tasting items that are in season.
