The farmers market thread

 Among my many purchases were black-eyed peas from Lani's - it's a Syrian tradition to eat them at Rosh Hashanah. 

I thought for sure I had at least 1/2 bag of black-eyed peas in my cabinet, but no such luck.  In their stead, I made 1/2 lb. of @rancho_gordo's yellow eye heirloom beans.

I'll start the ball rolling with the fingerling potatoes I bought at Tompkins Square yesterday. I am very bad at remembering the names of stalls, but there are only half a dozen or so here (open Sund

They make Hooligan (full stop) which some might call stinky. And mean that as a compliment.

Well, we need a thread for the rest of the entire world outside NYC, so here ya go.   What did you get at your farmers market? What did you get in your CSA box? Either will do: post it here!

You had to live in the Bay Area at that time.    That smell was everywhere, and it wasn't pot.   It was the food, the people, incense, general grunge.   But it was the food that was so criminal.    I was turned off whole wheat for decades.   How can well intentioned people create such good music and bad food?

NY folks will remember Angelica Kitchen restaurant in the East Village--I used to call that type of vegetarian cooking "brown rice and suffering".  Was there a collective fear of herbs and spices?  Did they learn nothing from all of those hippie trips to India?

No more Blue Moon Fish!

What's a good option for local squid -- whole (uncleaned) -- after this weekend? Their squid and some of the whole fish, if roughly handled, have been fairly reliable over the years, especially in that price range. I had fun with the random bonito Alex would haul in every once in a while.

Evidently gonna continue selling to wholesalers.

Good catch. Their farewell note reads, in part:


After providing millions of meals, driving countless miles, and enduring many sleepless nights, it is time to retire from selling at the NYC Greenmarkets.
