Photo by myself on the Upper West Side, around Broadway and 78th Street.
Westside Market is just a few blocks north of Fairway Supermarket. Both are large and well-trafficked markets with fresh produce set outside on the sidewalk.
The produce is there all year. Heat lamps under the awning keep shoppers warm during the cold months.
New York is a pedestrian city. The majority of New Yorkers take the subway and walk home. Along the way, they make stops to gather fresh produce, pet food, take-out dinner, whatever they need and can carry home.
Recently people have become lazier, ordering supplies from Fresh Direct. Hundreds of cardboard boxes with the Fresh Direct logo are piled on the sidewalks to be recycled.
Like many specialty stores, you can order from Westside Market, too. They will cater any type of event you have. Just click here.
