If you’re taking a walk around the West Village, here are a few shops worth stopping in. Florence Prime Meat Market on Jones Street is small and classic old time Greenwich Village. Baker Mari Tuttle buys the Newport Cut. “It’s tasty - and pretty affordable.”
Murray’s Cheese on Bleeker Street.
Incredible selection of cheeses, but more than just cheese.
Stop into Amy’s, next door to Murray’s, to pick up a sandwich.
For dessert, chef Alex Raij of Txkito, El Quinto Pino and La Vara, loves Patisserie Claude on West 4th Street.
Alex says this tiny bakery is “awesome for palmiers and French pastry.”
