The only new greens in the market were Muddy River's spinach and swiss chard and Queen's Farm's spinach, all of which I missed by sleeping late today. If spinach is here, can ramps be far behind? Well, they can be two or three weeks behind, according to some farmers. But it is definitely time for me to get to all the Union Square markets early to catch the stealth Spring produce!
Hammond Dairy is here with yogurt, Bobolink with cheddar and other cheeses and breads, Madura with mushrooms, Muddy River with root vegetables, Cayuga with the ale bread I've been talking about here for weeks, and Beth's Farm Kitchen with jams, chutneys, and pickled vegetables. The rose people have pretty anemones again today as well as roses and other flowers, and Samascott has many kinds of apples, root vegetables, and grass-fed beef.
Tree-licious has apples, apple products, and pastries. Roaming Acres has ostrich cuts and the lavender stand has various lavender products for gifts. John Fazio is here with poultry and Bodhitree has many kinds of greens and root vegetables.
