Ever since residing in a college in upstate NY, NYC trips have become a very common break destination for many of us - excited freshman students from the countryside especially (sorry Port Moody). This past Thanksgiving, we chose to stay in the city for around 3 days, and the main goal of this trip? Foodie Tours. Let's start with the heart of the city's foodie destination.
Located at 14th St, the market's surrounding neighbourhood is rather quiet compared to the noises of uptown NYC. This is a deceptive appearance as you will soon find out.

Since we visited during Thanksgiving/Pre-Christmas season, the store was mainly selling Christmas and Thanksgiving-themed cookies. Look at how detailed-ly decorated the cookies are!
Gift boxes for gifts - a little bit pricey but these cookies are just too pretty to eat.
Near Eleni's Cookies is Amy's Bread - apparently the best bread in the City. I wasn't sure if it really is the best due to my lack of experience and knowledge in bread (something to work on this year? hmm.) but the variety of bread available could support the statement.

I was "beyond excited" spotting Beyond Sushi (long heard as that vegan sushi place on instagram and always wanted to try in real life) at the Market. The sushis are colourful and probably dietitian-approved. (It's always beneficial to eat different-colored veggies everyday).

Though there were not seats or plates for a seat-in, the takeout boxes were also delicately packed. The mayonnaise and soy sauce were both in tiny squeeze bottles, which makes the plate look a lot more organized as well.
