I love the farmer’s market. Just being there makes me feel fresh and energized. Maybe it’s all the wonderful colors.
Or just the really cool natural things – grown, not engineered!
These have the texture of a cherry, taste like that of a milder, very sweet pineapple, but are closely related to the tomatillo.
Or maybe it’s the funky names people give some of the produce.
I love going to the market, so it was sad to say goodbye to Chicago’s Green City Market for this year. I’ve decided that I am going to make sure to shop for fresh produce at the market in New York, so this is definitely not goodbye forever.
But, I wanted to share some lovely fresh photos from my last summer market trip. All produce at this market has to be local (usually from Michigan), and most of it is certified organic.
In other news, this hurricane thing is much less crazy that most of us originally thought. Granted it hasn’t hit NYC yet, but I’m at my friends’ place, and we have plenty of food and water and supplies to go around. We’ll see what happens when the worst part of the storm hits tonight. I’ll keep posting updates on Twitter!
Do you have a local farmer’s market that you love? Tell me all about it!
