Law & Order: Greenmarket Bounty Unit

Every Saturday from 8am until 4pm, Grand Army Plaza operates as a Greenmarket. Farmers from all over the state of New York bring their fresh produce, meat, fish, rustic bread and even plants (at a stand staffed by the homeless) for sale. this past Saturday, the market was full of great, fresh treats. Just in one trip, I was able to find yellow corn, ripe tomatoes, zucchini, red peppers, peaches, fresh basil and yellow squash:

Basically what’s so great about Greenmarkets in New York, and farmer’s markets everywhere, is that you can have immediate access to foods grow directly by the seller and fresh from the farm. The flavors are so much more instense too. There’s really no comparison.

Here’s the sandwich we made from the day’s catch:

Add a little olive oil and baslamic vinegar and rusitc salt to the tomatoes, sprinkle freshly cut basil over the top and we had ourselves a nice little appetizer:

Other bounty…..books! And free books too….Toward the end of the day on Saturdays, as the stoop sales are winding up, a lot of the people selling stuff just want to get rid of the things then. So, books are some of the first htings to be tossed in the free basket:
