Nothing matches the joy of the May's first strawberries, which arrived at the Union Square greenmarket this week.

Market Scene: NY Lauren Rothman 1 comment

The tri-state area is still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Sandy: there are still more saddening photos to see, more heartbreaking stories to hear, and lines still forming at gas stations. But in spite of everything that's been terrible about the past two weeks, one of the the brightest beacons of hope in the ordeal has been watching New Yorkers band together and help each other to move forward. That's what last Saturday's market was all about. More

Market Scene: NY Lauren Rothman 1 comment

It's a funny time at the Greenmarket right now: summer standbys like corn and cucumbers still make an occasional appearance as farmers try to eke out the last of their warm-weather crops, but they're somewhat overshadowed by an abundance of cool-weather favorites like root vegetables galore, crucifers like cabbage and broccoli, and overflowing crates of crisp, sweet apples and pears.

Market Scene: NY Ben Fishner Post a comment

Erin's experience with pumpkin-flavored foods this week had her wondering what, exactly, a pumpkin tatses like (hint: it doesn't taste like a scented candle, as many grocery manufacturers seem to believe). What better way to refresh your memory than by visiting the Greenmarket and grabbing an actual pumpkin? Or delicata? Or blue hubbard, kobocha, golden acorn, and stripetti? Click through the slideshow for a closer look at all of the winter squash we've been seeing around the market lately. More

Market Scene: NY Lauren Rothman Post a comment

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.

Oh, tomato season! Many a market shopper's favorite time of year, and this year, we happen to be seeing the best tomato crop in years.
