••• Unfortunately, New Amsterdam Market has to reschedule its June 26 fundraiser and night market. From Robert LaValva: “After a series of conversations with the Department of Health, we came to realize that we would not have the time or the resources to bring this event into compliance with their recently revised regulations pertaining to the service and consumption of raw, cured, smoked, or pickled fish.  Since a number of our participants were planning to serve dishes using raw fish, we could not risk having these businesses incur any fines or violations, or having a public event shut down in whole or in part. We are working collaboratively with the Department of Health to ensure that any events we plan are fully adherent to their rules and aim to reschedule this event for a future date.”
