It’s no secret that hotel restaurants have been stepping up their game lately. But the recently opened Andaz Wall Street hopes to upstage the competition with the first-ever hotel-sponsored farmers’ market.
The Andaz Wall Street’s farmers’ market will debut July 10 and return every Saturday through November 20. Participating vendors are all suppliers to the hotel, and Wall & Water restaurant’s executive chef, Maximo Lopez May, will offer monthly cooking classes using their ingredients. It’s a boon for such local farms and purveyors as Migliorelli Farm, Quattro’s Poultry & Game Farm, and Beth’s Farm Kitchen. But somehow doesn’t make up for more independently spirited food markets closing.
