In season soon: More of the same!
The Greenmarket these days is looking, well, a little gray. Yup, it's winter, and the local produce you can get now is what you'll be getting clean through March or April: apples and pears; squash and roots; onions and crucifers. It's all delicious, but it's not too varied.
So on that note, Market Scene is going into hibernation for the winter. We'll see you back here in the spring when our favorite early-season vegetables start to appear, though we may pop up with highlights from winter markets from time to time!
The Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket is open on the Northwest corner of Prospect Park every Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
