Will Winter Never End? Stay Tuned!

If desperation drives you to purple-topped turnips, as it seems to have done to New York Magazine this week, you can find good-looking ones at Windfall Farm's stand today, along with a wide variety of microgreens and other greens and turnips. There are actually stands with salad, though, although we're still dependent on greenhouses and hydroponic farmers for lettuces and other greens. Bodhitree has a good variety of braising greens, salad, and pea shoots, as well as tomatoes. Two Guys From Woodbridge and Shushan have hydroponic salad greens and herbs and Shushan has hydroponic tomatoes.

Miglorelli has many kinds of frozen vegetables from their summer harvest and Madura has some greens along with their great variety of mushrooms, popcorn, and eggs. Windfall has their delicious aracuna eggs and squash puree. Rogowski has radishes, young garlic, and scallions. Berried Treasures has their tiny European potatoes and sunchokes.

Terhune, Locust Grove, Caradonna, and Breezy Hill have apples, cider, and pastries. Tamarack Farm has all kinds of pork products and Three Corner Field Farm is here with lamb cuts, yogurts, and cheeses. Ronnybrook has milks, yogurts, butters, and ice cream.

I'm totally addicted to Cayuga's ale bread, which is here along with their whole wheat loaf, grains, beans, and flours. Hot Kitchen is also here with various breads and Beth's Farm Kitchen has great jams and chutneys. I'm having ale bread with Ronnybrook butter and Beth's blueberry jam along with Windfall's eggs (hard boiled) for breakfast. Lovely!
