Opening Friday: Broadway French Market

So excited about this: a farmer's market is coming to Herald Square!

The Bensidoun-run Chelsea Triangle French Market last summer.

We've partnered with Bensidoun USA to bring the Broadway French Market to 34th Street. Think fresh local produce, cut flowers, organic goods, and handmade crafts. No more out-of-the-way trips to get decent fruits and veggies, because the Broadway French Market is right by your work, Midtowners. I know, #JOY. 

Stop by the plaza on Broadway between 35th and 36th Streets every Tuesday and Friday, 11:30am-6:30pm, May 3rd through November 26th, and get your local honey, wine, and artisan goods. Below is a little preview of what you'll see at the market's debut this Friday:

Robibero Family Vineyards
Harry and Carole Robibero's goal is to produce premium artisan wines that are distinctive to their terroir. Robibero wines are handcrafted, limited in number, and sold namely in their tasting room and online, so be sure to take the opportunity to taste them at our Broadway market.

JuLi Ra Design
Holding a degree in finance, the designer of JuLi Ra, originally from Hawaii, moved to New York City a couple years ago and pursued first a career in cooking, then one in jewelry-making. Her unusual path to jewelry design influenced her aesthetic, and inspires her pieces of art made out of colorful pearls, chains and ribbons.

The Original Delancey Street Peanut Company
This Newark company has been in business for over 100 years, and offers a unique selection of dried fruit, nuts (including brittles), and various raw bar products. Best, you'll be able to mix together whatever your heart desires at the Broadway French Market!

Canele by Celine
Celine Legros, the mind behind this pastry business, describes herself as French by birth and New Yorker by heart. The ex-business lawyer used to make caneles for her family and friends as little treats and presents. She decided to make a business out of her passion when chef Jean-Georoges Vongerichten tasted her pastry and asked if it was for sale. Celine makes caneles in different flavors such as chocolate, orange, lime, rose water, caramel, and pink praline.

The Orchards of Concklin
Operating in Rockland County since 1712, The Orchards of Concklin produce traditional pies and cookies from century old recipes, as well as their famous Apple Cider Donuts. The Orchards will also sell cider, local honey, cheeses, teas, and coffees.

Come by opening day this Friday and discover food and crafts from the above vendors, as well as vendors like Mead Orchards, Meredith's Bread, Olive Oil of the World, Tierra Farm, Yonas Gourmet Delights, Anthi's Greek Food, Vesco Food, and Lavender.
