Paper Magazine’s SuperDUPER Market

Yesterday, I headed down to Soho to check out this year’s SuperDUPER Market organized by Paper Magazine with the sponsorship of American Express and Target.  I’d dropped by this same weekend pop-up last year when it was held at Chelsea Market and had really enjoyed the mix of local food entrepreneurs, some out of town vendors, and other non-edible but food-related goods.  They managed to create a terrific energy in a small space.  Here’s some of the wonderful things I found there at this year’s event:

Ice cream with Bourbon & Cornflakes – oh, my!

6 - Better Off Spread - photoBetter Off Spread – nut butters in spicy and sweet flavors
My favorite was the jalapeno with its nutty beginning and punch of heat at the end

Really, how much fun are these? They would make such cute gifts.

7 - Gefilteria - photoGefilteria – whipping up delicious Cheese Blintzes with tangy Blueberry Sauce
My mother so loved these as a treat. After tasting theirs, I understand why.
They even make the cheese from scratch.

8 - Imperial Woodpecker Sno-balls - photoImperial Woodpecker Sno-balls – Blackberry and Cardomom Cream
I was hooked at first bite.  They also have a stand near the southern end of The Highline – what a great excuse to stop by and visit them again!

There’s just one more day left to enjoy this temporary market.  With so many delicious things to taste and interesting products to sample, you’ll want to allocate a few hours to roaming around the space and to visiting all the stalls.  There’s tables set up as well so that you can sit down to enjoy the items you to nosh on while you are there.

Buon appetito!
