Ice Cream and Tomatoes, or It's the End of Summer

Tomatoes
The first crops of apples are appearing at the markets like a death knell for summer days, so what better way to celebrate the end of heat, humidity, and sun than to gorge yourself on ice cream and tomatoes? I can't think of another way and I really should because I've been on vacation, you'll see the ridiculous that was my diet next week. Lucky for me, New Amsterdam Market is celebrating both delicious ice cream and juicy tomatoes this Sunday!

Bourbon Sea Salt Caramel
For $20, you can try ice cream and sorbet from some of our area's most fabulous ice cream people including MilkMade and The Bent Spoon! One ticket allows a tasting of six cups or cones with flavors of your choosing. That's from noon to 4pm. From noon to 3pm, you can taste tomato dishes from chefs from New York City's Food Systems Network including Chef Meg Grace from The Redhead. That $20 ticket will be benefiting FSNYC. But wait, there's more! If you want to do both, and you want to do both, you can for $35. An afternoon of savory and sweet, to be eaten at your leisure. Buy tickets for both by clicking here. Now, you can just always show up to eat good food and buy some for home. I recommend it.

New Amsterdam Market will be happening this Sunday, August 22 from 11am to 4pm.
