Wines of New York Being “Locapoured” at Union Square Greenmarket

Over the weekend, I was happy to discover the recent addition of the New York Winestand on Fridays at
The Union Square Greenmarket. As posted in NY Magazine’s food blog “Grub Street,” the event showcases
the wines of Long Island, The Finger Lakes and the Hudson Valley paired with Greenmarket dishes from Manhattan restaurants such as Back Forty and Republic.

As a former frequenter of the Union Square Market on Saturdays, I think this is a tremendous opportunity for the wines of the Finger Lakes and throughout New York to get in front of the foodies/winelovers of Manhattan who are already interested in the locavore movement, so “locapouring” seems to be the next logical step…and a boost for creating a trend toward drinking local wines. I’ll be keeping a close eye on New York Winestand, and applaud this effort to continue to highlight our local New York wines. If you find yourself in the area on a Friday afternoon, be sure to stop by.

    Melissa, Just found your site and wanted to let you know that Anthony Road is locapouring at the Union Square Greenmarket every Saturday, all year round. In fact John Martini has been driving down every Friday and driving back every Saturday after the market for 15 years. We love the Market.

  2. Hi Peter, The market is amazing!! I think that must be a great demographic to be in front of on a consistent basis for the wineries. I hope to visit New York City sometime this Spring so will need to try to stop by and say hello to John.
