Slideshow: Market Scene: Ramps and Green Garlic at the Union Square Greenmarket

Ramps, Max Creek Hatchery
Ramps, Max Creek Hatchery
Ramps are all over the market right now—get some before their short season ends. These were from Dave Harris of Max Creek Hatchery, but ramps are also available from Race Farm, Mountain Sweet Berry Farm, and others at the market.
Green Garlic, Lani's Farm
Green Garlic, Lani's Farm
Early in the season, before the bulbs have had time to develop, you get this beautiful green garlic. It doesn't inspire the mass hysteria that ramps do, but for my money it's just as precious a crop—something like a garlicky scallion, you can use a ton of it without overwhelming a dish.
Spring Onions, Madura Farms

Madura Farms had these beautiful red spring onions in addition to green garlic and their regular selection of mushrooms.
White Carrots, Rogowski Farm

There's still plenty of beautiful root veggies at the market, like these white carrots at Rogowski's stand. And dig those pretty scallions in the background!
