Cucumbers from the Queens County Farm Museum

Before heading over to the Javits Center for the Fancy Food Show (report to come later this week), I made my way out to Williamsburg to attend the second annual UnFancy Food Show, a smaller counter-celebration to the huge zoo of a convention in Manhattan, which spotlights local New York City foods and flavors instead. Don't let the name fool you, there was plenty of fancy food offered, but the mood was casual and relaxed and the sun shone throughout the day.

The Queens County Farm Museum was on hand with produce produced exclusively in Queens. To be any more local it would have had to have been produced in Brooklyn.
