Mesclun!!!! First sign of Spring vegetables!!! Ted Blew of Oak Grove Farm has brought in beautiful tiny greens. I picked up a fresh sheep's milk cheese from Three Corner Field Farm to go with it and some Aged Farmstead cow's milk cheese from Cato for a nibble later.
We're really rich with all sorts of meats and poultry in the Greenmarket. Quattro's Game Farm has luscious chickens, ducks, and other poultry (Can't wait for their own signs of Spring -- pheasant, duck, and turkey eggs. Soon!). Violet Hill has delicious chickens, bacon, pork roasts, sausages, and flavorful smoked pig trotters. Flying Pig has various tasty cuts of pork and excellent liverwurst.
Ted Blew says he stores his excellent popcorn in the refrigerator. I generally put it in the freezer, which he also recommends. I get fluffy popcorn every time!
Cato has an interesting wine-washed cheese and a number of other great varieties today. There's plenty of good bread and Ronnybrook has delicious butters, fresh cheeses, milks, and flavored yogurts.
