Market Scene: Union Square Greenmarket
As we learned yesterday, many of our Greenmarket farmers were hit hard by Hurricane Irene and need our support more than ever. That shouldn't be too hard, as the late summer crops are out in full force, with a few new fall additions beginning to appear.
On top of all that, wish the Greenmarket a happy birthday next time you're there: this week marked the market's 35th anniversary! Click through the slideshow to see what we saw at the market this week, including donut peaches, pluot plums, fresh soy beans, Asian pears, hot peppers and much more.
