Well I'm back from Indiana,
but all the photos are on
the bf's camera. So I will be saving
that post for next time.

I woke up super early...well 8ish...
to get ready and go walk Mr. Serg.
(we had a lovely walk)
Then I jumped on the L to Union Sq
where I found a small slice of heaven.

The Greenmarket has been
doing their thing since 1976.
Organizing open air markets
that feature local farmers,
small and large.

My first visit was so overwhelming
that I failed to take down the names
of the farm booths that I visited.
(Though I did buy a small jar of
rasberry jam from Berkshire Berries)

Each tent has their own
unique selection and prices.
My gigantor cucumber was $.50!!

You can also buy eggs, milk,
cheese, meat, fish and flowers.
Very diverse and everything is natural.

This is a photo of my purchases.
Not pictured is the cup of mint iced tea
that I enjoyed whilst I did my shopping,
and the rasberry jam.

I left with:
1 loaf of 7 Grain bread
1 container of blackberries
1 container of strawberries
3 nectarines
2 tomatoes
1 jumbo cucumber
1 handful of haricot verts
A few fingerling potatoes
2 handfuls of green beans
1 green pepper
1 squash
1 zucchini ball
1/2 dozen eggs
1 container of fresh spinach pasta
(rasberry jam)
(mint iced tea)
and these two herb plants
*Cilantro and Basil

all of that for a little less than $40
the priciest items being the eggs, pasta
and berries.

I highly recommend getting to a Greenmarket
or even just a small produce shack on the side
of the road, and put your money back into the local farms!
