NYC foodie spotlight on Catskills foods tomorrow

Smoked eels and other Catskills-area specialties will enjoy 15 minutes of farm market fame at the New Amersterdam Market in lower Manhattan tomorrow. The market is featuring our local foods, those collected by the eel philosopher of Delaware County, Ray Turner. (At least, we think so -- he's the only person who catches and sells wild eels around here that we know of.)

Other local foods slated to appear at the market tomorrow, according to the Village Voice:

Painted Goat and Cooperstown Cheese Company will offer hard cider-washed-rind Gouda and raw-milk Tilsit, respectively, while Main Street Farm, a shop in Livingston Manor, will be selling grass-finished beef from Slope Farms, which normally retails only at the Park Slope Food Co-op. They'll also be selling the aforementioned smoked eel and trout, as well as tea from Tay Tea.

You can read the whole list of vendors on the market's website. Happy shopping!
