Luke’s Lobster, Mast Bros. Join New Amsterdam’s Roster of Vendors


When the New Amsterdam Market returns to the South Street Seaport next Sunday, it will have a few more local vendors on its roster.

According to its website, Luke’s Lobster and the Mast Brothers will be selling their lobster rolls and chocolate bars, respectively. And for curd nerds, here’s some even better news: Anne Saxelby will be resurrecting her perfect grilled cheese sandwiches, which she sold last year at the Brooklyn Flea. At New Amsterdam she’ll be making them with Mother in Law’s kimchi, which sounds like it’ll be a pairing for the ages.

In other alfresco market news, the Hester Street Fair will kick off its Geenmarket this Sunday, with Broadway East’s Sasha St. Germaine on hand to do a Greenmarket-inspired menu. Also, there will be tacos from a Lower East Side couple calling themselves Taco’s Last Stand, and, yes, more cupcakes, this time courtesy of Swoon Cupcakes, a new Brooklyn company.
