Fresh locally grown ginger at Norwich Meadow Farms! Agri dolce and Grenadan seasoning peppers at Eckerton! Canadice and other grapes at Cheerful Cherry and Buzzard Crest!

Berried Treasures
 Knockout sungold cherry tomatoes at Van Houten and D'Attolico! Ready to eat heirloom tomatoes at Oak Grove, Stokes, Cherry Lane, Sycamore, and others.  Gorgeous baby red spinach at Lani! Spingarelli broccoli and Lamborn shoots at Mountain Sweet Berry.  Many kinds of delicious hot peppers at Eckerton and Oak Grove, as well as boxes of mixed peppers at S&SO. 19 varieties of heirloom tomato at Cheerful Cherry. Beautiful shelling beans, including cannellini, cranberry beans, and others at Berried Treasures (now at full maturity and easy to shell). 
Crab apples and other tasty varieties at Breezy Hill. Delicious stone fruit at great prices at Caradonna today.  Peaches and other stone fruit along with apples and pears at Caradonna, Oak Grove, Terhune, Locust Grove, Cheerful Cherry, and others. I saw pumpkins along with winter squash AND summer squash varieties today! Norwich Meadows has many kinds of squash, eggplant, beans, peppers, heirloom tomatoes, greens, and melons today.
The Greenmarket had a Parisian visitor today, Gregory Marchand of Frenchie, who was shopping for an event for tomorrow in Brooklyn. I'm so jealous of anyone who is going! I couldn't get into Frenchie when I was in Paris in May. Maybe next time.Well, at least I got to tell Carmen Quaglia of Union Square Cafe (who I met also shopping) how much I loved his ricotta gnocchi this week! So nice to be able to tell the chefs when you have a great meal.
At least I got to have a picture with Chef Marchand!
To see these and other stands and produce:  Saturday Greenmarket
