Chowderheads and Other Do-Gooders
Our man Robert Sietsema was in the East Village this past weekend filling up on chowder at Jimmy #43's "Chowder Slam," an event to benefit the New Amsterdam Market. The organization, which is working toward establishing an indoor public market in Manhattan made up of butchers, grocers and mongers of all sorts, is seeking volunteers who are good with their hands to help build stalls and kiosks for the new market. Not as fun as eating chowder, we know, but a great way to support small farms and other food purveyors.
