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.

The GAP Greenmarket was almost bereft of vendors today.

But you can bet Holy Schmitt was there.

Are you preparing your Shift+RRRRRR?

fava beans and peas are a month away so some things will have to wait.

today we bought: whole chicken, bacon, castelfranco radicchio, mint, cilantro, chives, parsley, mesclun, arugula, radishes, spring onions, carrots, potatoes, leeks, asparagus, strawberries, mustard greens, stinging nettles, ricotta cheese, scallion cream cheese and a couple of bagels.

the pictures are from devil’s gulch ranch. their stuff is pricey and very good. we’ve started to explore their wares because they’re more interesting than what fatted calf offers.

So guess who finally dragged herself out of bed early to get to Tompkins Square and look for ramps and shad, only to find no ramps and no shad - no fish guy at all, ‘cause he called out today. Now guess who cheered herself up with an egg cream and then stopped into Union Market because what the hell. And Union Market had ramps! It’s been a roller coaster morning.

And the jury: Very disappointing.    Despite the vibrant color, there was indistinguishable flavor.    Could have been spinach and kiss of green onion.    Or...    They need to ramp up the ramps.
