Battery Place Market
Residents of Battery Park City can feel really good about picking up a quick lunch at this marketplace. First off, it's in the energy-efficient, LEED-certified Visionaire building, meaning you don't have to stress over the carbon footprint of your turkey on rye. The spot also stocks some pretty awesome foodstuffs from around town—you can pick up coffee from Stumptown roasters, breads from Sullivan Street Bakery and pastries from Balthazar. Oh, and if you're craving something sweet, be sure to scope out the ice cream selection; they've got opens from Van Leeuwen, the proprietors of the popular ice cream trucks that make people go gaga. As far as produce goes, you can trust that much of it comes from local and sustainable sources. Oh, and booze hounds will be happy to note that the store also stocks unusual home bar items, including grenadine from Employee's Only.
