Nothing says "Hello spring!" quite like a sideways snowstorm. Luckily, bakeries around New York City are lightening our spirits with free macarons!
All you need to do to get your sweet treat is let the sales people know you're there for Macaron Day NYC, and voila! You'll get one macaron on the house. Now if you're anything like the rest of the population and couldn't possibly eat only one macaron, you'll be glad to know when you purchase additional treats from these bakeries your money will go to City Harvest, an organization dedicated to getting food to those in need in New York.
So get out there and brave the snow. A free macaron is definitely worth the trip. Below is a list of the bakeries participating in Macaron Day.
