Saturday at the Farmers Market – Union Square Greenmarket

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday in New York City is wander through the farmers market / Greenmarket at Union Square.  I recommend doing this after a filling NYC brunch so that you don’t buy everything in sight.

Here are some photos from this week’s trip after running Summer Streets.   I didn’t take many photos because my arms were filled with Farmers Market treats  (I just ran 9 miles! I was hungry!!) and I couldn’t manage the camera. Maybe next time I’ll go and just take pictures without shopping.

Who am I kidding, that will never happen…

Enjoy the pics!

I can’t wait for these trees to start coloring for fall.

Scored this pot of basil for $2.00!  

So many carrots!  I had never heard of ‘White Carrots’ & ‘Rainbow Carrots’ before.

Peter Piper Picked a pack of Purple Peppers?

Garlic Heads.

Fresh Pasta.

Beets.  So fresh and beautiful! I couldn’t resist buying these and will attempt to pickle them this week.

Local Pride.
