To Market

One of the many treasures New York City offers are the 40+ neighborhood greenmarkets. The Granddaddy of them all is the Union Square Market at 14th Street open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday. The only problem is – Mom works Monday – Friday, and Saturday is Central Park Day. (Central Park wins out over fresh produce – at least in my book).

The answer is our very own greenmarket at the Daj Hammarskjold Plaza (47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues). Our market operates every Wednesday from 8am – 6pm. Mom and I meet Due and Deborah at the corner, skip the dog run to head to the market. Just look at these apples - this is NEW YORK after all!

Due and I wait out of the way of shoppers. Mom and Deborah dig right in.

Cherries - that look like cherries! I'm thinking PIE...or maybe a TART....

Mom thinks tomatoes - ripe, juicy, blood red tomatoes - is just what summer tastes like! I bet she gets some fresh mozzarella and a loaf of french bread...maybe a bunch of basil to go with these!

Checkout the greenmarkets in your neighborhood. If you're lucky yours will be open year-round just like the ones we have here in New York. Bone Appetit!
