In season soon: More apples and pears, more grapes, more winter squash.

This week, we turn our attention to one of the early fall highlights of the market: peppers of every shape, size, and color are all over the market right now, from big sweet red bell peppers to neon yellow, mouth-burning specimens.

The Union Square Greenmarket is open on the North and West sides of Union Square Park every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
