Springtime in NYC


I really had not planned to be in New York for the weekend, but it turned out to be one of the best I have had in years. The rain stopped, the sun decided to pop out and people began filling the walkways and aisles. Their carts and baskets were overflowing with the produce and spring delicacies brought in from NY and a few other surrounding states.


The vegetable pictures are from the market located at Union Station. The variety of vegetables ranged from wild arugula to wild ramps with their beautiful flat broad leaves to mushrooms and French fingerling potatoes. There was no shortage of anything. I only wished I was having a dinner party that weekend ~ everything I would have needed was right there in front of me! The asparagus was piled high and beautifully displayed tempting every "passer-by- er". Home-baked pies and breads were also in abundance. Did I mention the cheese and fresh butters? For a brief moment I thought I was in France~ New York City, you were beautiful this weekend.

The Greenmarket has definitely changed the way I feel about New York in springtime, too. It is such an optimistic place, filled with good energy and the promise of an abundant summer.

Isn't the Greenmarket wonderful? I like to try and sneak down on Friday morning before work and buy produce for the weekend. Interestingly, I was driving by Union Square about 3 in the afternoon on Saturday!
