We were happy to see our Northside markets showcased in an article by Don Cazentre on Syracuse.com. An array of pictures that feature colorful produce, humble business owners, and families shopping are accompanied by an interview with Adam Sudmann of My Lucky Tummy who speaks to the history of these markets and gives his “Top 5 Markets to Try.”
“‘Within a five minutes drive on the North Side you’ll find Burmese and Bhutanese, West African, Somali, Lao, Middle Eastern-Iraqi,’ said Adam Sudmann, who in two short years has made himself something of an expert on the new wave of North Side food markets. “These markets are so cool, so vibrant.” . . .
Many of the newer refugees, now numbering 8,000 to 10,000 in Syracuse, live in or near the city’s North Side.
While it’s true that many of the markets started up to serve members of a particular ethnic community – a Burmese market for Burmese refugees, for example – there is now a great degree of what Sudmann calls ‘cross pollination.’”
