1. Find a local market (I'm a big fan of Smorgasburg, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn)
2. Engage with local vendors (Brown Butter Brooklyn, Kumquat Cupcakery, Salvator Brooklyn, are among a few of my many favorites at Smorgasburg) and learn new things (like Market Share, a soon-to-be shared kitchen space, or Wellness In The Schools, an educational stand about a program that helps promote healthy food in schools in NYC).
3. Eat super well (duh).

Mini pies (that's a keylime-tequila pie with a corn chip crust in the back) from Brown Butter Brooklyn
Mini cupcakes from Kumquat Cupcakery--the Maple Pecan Bacon ones are delicious
4. Lay in the sun while you digest your meal. Possibly while reading a food-related publication.
5. If you can, take in a skyline...
