The farmers market thread


Recommended Posts

There were fiddleheads at 97th street as well.

I know it's the end of May but the season was so late in starting I figured we have them another week. I did get some sugar snaps though.

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!

I’ve made my peace with frozen peas, BTW, if anyone cares.

They really are good.  

But of course.

People going crazy over the sugar snaps at USQ today. I can take or leave them.

they’re small potatoes, to quote Hyman Roth.

Actually this once really happened.

My wife once sent me out to the neighborhood Korean fruit stand to buy some parsley.  I didn’t know what parsley looked like.  So I asked the guy at the fruit stand which unlabeled green was parsley.  He apparently didn’t know either—at least not in English—and pointed me to a bin of cilantro.

When I got home my wife was disgusted.  I told her what happened.

”USELESS,” she said.  “You’re both USELESS.”

I have been known to sniff bunches of green stuff in supermarkets to make sure I am buying cilantro not parsley, or vice versa.
