One of my favorite things (and something I’m really going to miss) in New York City is the Union Square Farmer’s Market. It’s open every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8am-6pm. I could (and sometimes do) spend hours wandering the booths, talking to the purveyors and buying up fruit, veggies, meat, cheese, bread and flowers for the week to come. I absolutely love being able to see, touch and smell the ingredients I’m going to use before I buy them.
I went by the market today and took some pictures to post (the picture of the herbs on my header bar is from my trip today). Enjoy!
I love getting to the market right when they open in the morning, so I can get the best of what everyone has to offer. I find that as the day passes, there’s less to choose from. Check out what’s happening at the Union Sq market and other markets in NYC here.
