Airports are quickly turning into hubs with local and high-end commerce options that give arriving visitors the first taste of a destination. From food trucks to greenmarkets, food is one of the easiest ways to convey a sense of place and appeal to travelers.

Homemade apple pies, jams, honey, peach relish and a bale of hay are just some of the items travelers can expect to see or purchase when they pass through JetBlue Airway‘s Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in late October.
The airline will be setting up a farmstand for three days starting on Oct. 29, allowing passengers who have cleared security to nosh on some local fare or bring some home to their destination.
