Market Scene: Fall Arrives at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket
In season now: Apples, Pears, Winter Squash, Beets, Potatoes, Carrots, Turnips, Cabbage, Hardy Greens
In season soon: More of the same
Summer favorites like corn, tomatoes and eggplant were in scarcer supply at the Greenmarket last Saturday, but it was hard to be depressed about that when surrounded by the bounties of fall that appeared in their place: crisp, tart apples; many-hued pears; and a multitude of cold-loving crops like broccoli, cauliflower, turnips and greens. I say bring on the roasts, soups, stews, pies and compotes of autumn: I'm ready.
Click through the slideshow above to take a closer look at these fall beauties, and make sure to check out the market tomorrow (bring a sweater)!
The Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket is open on the Northwest corner of Prospect Park every Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
