We're just getting into spring, and that means one thing for New York's food lovers: the Greenmarket is once again the place to be, the most rewarding place to shop for locally sourced produce. (Among other things—fresh lamb bacon, anyone?) I'm not trying to slam the winter vendors, who should get a medal for sticking it out in the bitter cold, but you can only get so excited about root vegetables, kale, and more root vegetables.

Yesterday at the Union Square Greenmarket, signs of spring were everywhere: asparagus, ramps, and green garlic were all over the place. There were even edible flowers! Check out the goods in the slideshow above.
