The farmers market thread

Recommended Posts

I went to this sort of private show last night.

This morning, as I was being checked out at one of my regular Greenmarket stands, the checker said to me, "didn't I see you at a show last night?"

She was the opening act.

"I wondered why you looked so familiar," she added.

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.

Nice to see you here, Paul.

Husband stripped our two small trees in the country


And this morning at our neighborhood farmers market, heirloom tomatoes ($3. a pound), gorgeous beets with luxurious greens ($3.50 bunch), pluots (husband bought so have no idea of price) and lion's head mushrooms ($6.50 for fist size piece).    I thought prices overall looked down, quality excellent.

Hudson Valley Duck at Union Square today. While they're not 2 for $5 any more, they're available, and we needed confit in the freezer, as well as to eat soon, I believe.


Six big-ass legs curing...they're a pound each, before trimming.  Salt, pepper, shallots, garlic, thyme.

Also have 2 cups of beautifully rendered fat, from the trimming of the legs. Legs will be individually vacuum packed, and cooked sous vide...till done; though a pair will likely be cooked together to have a nice dinner this weekend.

It was at least sunny, so I did a Greenmarket run and was surprised at how busy it was. Because it is cold! And there is not much produce! I did get some spaghetti squash, mushrooms, garlic, pears, cod and a dozen oysters for $10 (woot!).

It didn't make me want it, either.  But I'm going to say "no" to some girl standing at a table raising money for her troop?

(It's WAY outnumbered by Thin Mints and whatever the current iteration of the lemon cookie is.)
