The strawberry was the star of the market this week at the Union Square Greenmarket. Almost every stand had at least one box of the juicy red gems. Cherries of the sweet and sour variety were also in abundance. We saw huge piles of carrots of all colors, curly garlic scapes, and some tiny yet delicious cucumbers.
