Union Square Farmer’s Market

For the past month or so, I’ve been going to the Union Square Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning. As far as farmer’s markets go, it’s not very big, but the produce is colorful and fresh. There’s even a Chinese family that sells peapod stems, Chinese broccoli, napa cabbage, bok choy, and more. Other purchases include peaches (sweet & succulent), apples (crisp & flavorful), corn (sweet & juicy), fingerling potatoes, and tomatoes.

Walking there and back to buy locally grown produce feels like a healthy, eco-friendly thing to do. I don’t mind paying the extra 25% or so for great food; we’ve been purchasing nearly all of our fruits and vegetables at the market. I will be quite sad when the market shuts down for the winter.
