The Union Square Greenmarket draws its fair share of home cooks, tourists, and passing apple-grazers, but the real champion shoppers are professional chefs—or, in the case of the bigger-name establishments, the capable delegates they send out into the field.

The Feed follows Gramercy Tavern veteran shopper Modesto Batista around Union Square; Tasting Table, for its part, profiles Annie Myers, "official forager" for April Bloomfield, bringing in the market haul for The John Dory and The Spotted Pig. Find out where Batista stops for squash blossoms, whose Shiro plums he prefers, and where Myers finds her secret stash of trout.
