Some of the finest herbs at the market can be found at Berried Treasures. "We still wow the finest chefs with our parsley," proclaims Tantillo. Kate Galassi, the food buyer for the Spotted Pig and the Breslin, says that though they don't buy herbs from many people at the market, "[Franca's herbs] are incredible." Pictures here are sage and chives, but you can also find others like thyme, chamomile, and lemon verbena to name a few.
