After receiving her MA at The Johns Hopkins University, Karen E. Seiger spent the first part of her career focusing on international aid and development. She moved to New York City in 2000 with her husband, where she changed careers to focus on international marketing and communications at American Express, and then as an independent business consultant. She volunteers as a tour guide of Ground Zero. When she's home, her family never misses the farmers' market at Abingdon Square in the West Village on Saturday mornings.
"This lovely little book offers an insider's guide to the best artisan, farmer, food and flea markets in the Big Apple...She profiles permanent and semipermanent markets, annual and semiannual markets, holiday markets and numerous artists who populate he scene. Quirky and fun." --"The Chicago Tribune"
