A Style Dispatch From NYC's Union Square Farmers Market
Who knew the best street style could be found while shopping for groceries?
Welcome to Coveteur's latest series, Farmers Market Run. As endless fans of personal style, Coveteur editors are forever curious about what people are wearing and how they're wearing it. In pursuit of style inspiration this summer, we’re heading across the country to various farmers markets—one of our favorite spots for people-watching!—to uncover off-duty style in its truest form: supporting local purveyors and buying groceries.
While many people head to the Union Square Farmers Market for the food, we go for the fashion. Behind the assortment of radishes and rutabagas, New York City residents are offering major style inspiration. We've spotted a Parsons student clad in a Cos shirt and a Versace tote, a chef championing Vince and Sandy Liang, and a fitness guru toting a watermelon wicker basket.
Each market-goer serves as proof that the anatomy of a weekend morning outfit is quintessentially happenstance (or at least looks like it). It’s the perfect synthesis of function and fashion. The footwear is utilitarian—Clarks, Docs, and Salomons—but the fashion is fun. Think: a gauzy coat from Korean streetwear brand System. These farmers market-goers are putting on their most trusted pieces and heading out the door.
