New York was ahead of the curve with green markets. I remember going to my first such more than 20 years ago in Union Square. Now there are green markets all over the boroughs, my current fave, due to its proximity to the daughters and son-in-law, is at Grand Army Plaza in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
I wondered if it would be teeming with people on July 4 and whether all the farmers would come in. They did and the vegetables, fruits, flowers, eggs, fish, meats, and mushroom purveyors were out in force.
Snap peas (which I just snapped - delicious)
Eat too many and you'll have cherry belly
Summer's here when its namesake squash appears
I should have made strawberry shortcake
My mother, born and raised but two miles from here, loved geraniums
