Sustainable jerk chicken, greens and rice from Veronica's Kitchen
What happens when you pair local street carts with sustainable local farms, and one outstanding food market? The Vendy Awards + New Amsterdam Market's "International Meats Local." The concept was launched at this past Sunday's outdoor market.

Tickets ($20-$35) were exchanged for hefty tastings of five international dishes: meaty pot stickers, spicy jerk chicken, chorizo breakfast burritos, gooey pupusas and fresh tamales.

And now the Vendys have plans in the works to help vendors source sustainably in general. Can you hear me cheering?
