Spring is in full swing at the Union Square Greenmarket and at Greenmarkets around the city. It started a few weeks back with the first green garlic and, yes, ramps, and as of this week we've been seeing asparagus, fiddleheads, and other springtime goodies. Click through the slideshow for a closer look at what's turning up at the market lately.

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.
