Grand Central Market

Yesterday my phone decided to publish this as I was uploading the photos. But I was not ready yet.

I pass by Grand Central Market every day on week days and sometimes in the weekends. It’s one of my favorite places, it makes me feel a tourist and a New Yorker at the same time; and I am none of them. Grand Central Market is inside the famous Grand Central Station.

Salami and other delicacies

I love shopping there. Everything is gourmet and the quality is really good. I only wish it weren’t so expensive. It’s the best place if you want to prepare a special meal, or if you want to buy some gourmet delicacy but it’s definitely not the place to buy the groceries of the month.

Fig Marmalade is one of my favorites

You should go to Grand Central Market at least once, even if you don’t need or intend to buy anything. For me, It is one of the attractions that should not be missed. All tourists go to Grand Central anyways. It’s really worth to extend your visit 5 minutes and get into the Market. I am sure you won’t want to get out.
