What I Bought Today and Other Beautiful Produce

I love Hudson Valley Duck Farm's Rillettes, so I bought some to replace the succulent appetizer I bought on Wednesday.  I stopped at Stokes and picked up some red jacket small potatoes with rosemary and mixed bunches of cut herbs (they were so good in my capon -- I'm going to have them with a chicken next Saturday). Ronnybrook didn't forget their terrific garlic butter today, so I bought some to store for Christmas. 

Among the absent: Cherry Lane, Quattro's. But check this out to see who's here:  Small Business Saturday Greenmarket

It looks as if all of our Greenmarket Saturday stands are here in Madison Square Park!!

The stands are spread all over around the park and it looked as if a few are on Broadway below 23rd Street.

See this for most stands that are at Madison Square Park:

(I went back just now at the Gmarket at Madison Square and saw Nemeth, Mountain Sweet Berry, Norwich Meadows, D'Attolico, and a few others I missed earlier.

REALLY?? THEY CAN'T FIND ANOTHER PARKING LOT FOR THE TRUCKS?

 I was shocked to hear that the Christmas market will open next week but that the Farmers may still be displaced to Madison Square. Surely now that it is colder the trucks could be moved to school yards like the one on Greenwich Ave for PS 41 or the one in the 20's on Second Avenue.  The people who came to help us are wonderful, but the farmers who came to Union Square the week after 9/11 were and are wonderful too.  Anyone with a memory bigger than that of a gnat will remember that during a horrific time after the terror attack these people came, fed New Yorkers (some, like Windfall, for free), and gave us our courage back just by struggling into the city and giving us a feeling of normalcy. They're doing it again today!!!
