The Financial District is rapidly becoming a foodie mecca, and it’s only getting better for all the grocery-starved residents filling the myriad new condos opening downtown.

A farmers market that once operated at the World Trade Center is back for the first time since the September 11 attacks, according to the New York Post.

The new market, closed for almost 16 years, opened just east of One World Trade Center. The produce market had been one of the first farmers markets to open in New York City, but after 9/11, vendors struggled to find a new location downtown.

Jessica Lappin, a community organizer in Fidi, told the Post that the area really wanted the market back up and running, and that it will be open every Tuesday through November
