Union Square Greenmarket, Manhattan


Recommended Posts

Had the pleasure of strolling around the Union Square Greenmarket in NYC yesterday. A friend and I made a little picnic out of super sweet first of the season strawberries, fresh sourdough bread with a killer thick crispy crust and some chicken salad (OK- that came from the Whole Foods across the street). Took some Jonagold and Honeycrisp apples home to mom and felt more then a little sad that I don't get to go to markets more often.

it's interesting to find a thread dedicated to USGM on what is predominantly a DelMarVa-focused board.

anyway... ;)

a few pix from yesterday; the rest are on my blog linked to in my signature.

very unusual to see parsnips so early in November. i should have bought a few, given that one of my favorite ways to serve them is for breakfast, fried in butter with toasted hazelnuts or pistachios and lightly drizzled with honey or maple syrup.

German butterball potatoes. think of Yukon Golds, except these are denser and buttery in flavor; they're excellent roasted, fried or turned into olive oil mashed potatoes.

Great pictures of the market, Trelayne! I grew up in NY and watched the USGM transform that neighborhood.When I made that first post, I was living in Tallahassee, FL - a good produce desert. Wandering through the market, even so early in the season, was uplifting.

Thanks.  I shop there weekly.  This is probably my fave time of year.
