Divine Brine has many delicious kinds of pickles. There are tasty San Marzano tomatoes at Cherry Lane and other heirloom tomatoes there and at several other stands.

Stokes cauliflower
It's still a pepper paradise at Eckerton, Stokes, S&SO, Oak Grove, and other stands.  Stokes has gorgeous hydroponic lettuces and they, Sycamore, Oak Grove, and many other stands have gorgeous pumpkins and winter squashes.

The recessional begins, with heirloom tomatoes and others being one of the first to end their season. Peppers are hanging on at many stands and grapes will still be here next week at Buzzard Crest.

Mountain Sweet Berry
Blueberries will be finished.  Sycamore still had corn today!  It was a bit crowded in the Greenmarket with tourists, marchers about something, and late waking shoppers, so some stands were two deep and hard to get through to.  It's a beautiful day and there are a lot of delicious vegetables and proteins all around the market.  Paradise for squash and pumpkin fans and lovers of Brussels sprouts!

A little vacation in New Hampshire

I was planning to get to the market today, but spent 8 hours on the Vermonter yesterday and am simply knocked out! I'll be back posting this weekend, but have decided to enjoy the rainy day at home. See you later!
