A Surprisingly Balmy Day in the Greenmarket!

You will find most of your favorite Wednesday stands here today AND next Wednesday, but you may have to search among the stands from other market days which will be here on the day before Thanksgiving. The Christmas crafts market is being built as we speak, which means that several stands are already in different places from their usual spots. Bulich Mushrooms has moved about a block up from their usual and Locust Grove is also up a couple of blocks. Cherry Lane is in their usual Wednesday spot today with brussels sprouts, arugula, broccoli, and sweet potatoes, but you may have to hunt for them next week. Sycamore is NOT here today. Kernan is in their spot.

Stokes Farm is here today with great bunches of cut herbs, including their mixed bunch for poultry -- sage, rosemary, and thyme. Eckerton has cardoons, heirloom tomatoes, brussels sprouts on branches, hot peppers of many sorts, including bunches on branches. Keith has braising greens, herbs, Rocambole garlic, and salad greens. Berried Treasures has all sorts of cherry tomatoes, potatoes, and sunchokes.

Cardoons! Winter Squashes!! Brussels Sprouts!! Mustard Greens!! Sweet Potatoes!! Last of the Crosnes!!!

Well, the recessional continues, with crosnes (from Mountain Sweet Berry) disappearing after this week and the few heirloom tomatoes looking like candidates for Fried Green Tomatoes. Sycamore will continue to have field and greenhouse tomatoes for a couple of weeks and Shushan's hydroponic variety is looking pretty good, but Thanksgiving will probably see many farmers finishing for the year. The Grenada flavoring peppers so popular with Caribbean cooks is gone from Eckerton's table (although they do have cardoons!). Eckerton, Oak Grove, and others have interesting winter squashes -- some good for pies, others for soups and stews.

There are plenty of holiday offerings, including all kinds of large and small potatoes (Mountain Sweet Berry, Berried Treasures, Paffenroth), many varieties of cauliflower (Bodhitree, Hodgeson, and others), braising greens, and carrots (Paffenroth). Eckerton and Oak Grove have many kinds of hot and flavoring peppers and have distinctly different choices, so hot pepper lovers still have a chance to enjoy some unique flavors. Bulich and Madura have a large variety of mushrooms.

Windfall Farm is bringing in apple pumpkin turnovers and pumpkin cupcakes in addition to their excellent mini, small, and large salad mixes and varieties of sprouts, and still have some edible flowers.

Order your holiday birds from Violet Hill, Quattro's, and others

D'Attolico, Berried Treasures, Oak Grove, Paffenroth, Sycamore, Mountain Sweet Berry, and others are here with good-looking winter produce. I was made late by a delivery problem and couldn't take a serious look at each stand, but it looks as if the cold did get to what remained of summer vegetables for the most part. Still, there are beautiful squashes, peppers, cauliflowers, brussels sprouts, all kinds of potatoes, and other tasty vegetables available. I did manage to get some gorgeous chicken parts for my stock, and several farmers had turnips, leeks, carrots, and onions, so it should be good. I didn't see celery, but there ought to be some there.

You can order your turkey or other bird for Thanksgiving today from Violet Hill, Quattro's, and others.
