I bought Bodhitree's "froggy" melon -- the last, unfortunately--and Norwich's Cavaillon melon for a sweet treat. This is the last day for Berried Treasures red currants and they have very few boxes of tiny wild blueberries, but plenty of Tri-Star strawberries. Sycamore, Oak Grove, Bodhitree and others have plenty of good looking heirloom tomatoes and Oak Grove has a wide selection of hot and sweet peppers and pepper plants. Norwich has many kinds of eggplant and Oak Grove, Samascott, Treelicious, and others have lots of peaches. Binder and Oak Grove have lush herb plants as well as other plants, and Bodhitree and Lucky Dog have cut herbs.
Queens County Farm has greens and flowers and Flying Pig has pork cuts and sausages. Roaming Acres has bison, beef, pork, and ostrich meat today. Pura Vida is here with many kinds of fish and Hot Bread Kitchen and others have many kinds of bread. Las Delicias has their outstanding pastries, including madeleines, tiny chocolate brownies, muffins, and small savory tarts.
Two Guys has lettuces and mushrooms and Madura has several kinds of mushrooms and shallots. Muddy River has excellent produce, including artichokes, fennel, and fresh garlic.
