Peppers! Tomatoes! Squashes! Pumpkins! Salad greens! Grapes! Peaches?!? Apples! Pears! The Greenmarket is full of good things today!

Cherry Lane
Peaches, you say? Yes! There are peaches -- a farewell appearance before the Autumn shuts down the summer stone fruit until next year. There are still stands with heirloom tomatoes, including Eckerton, Stokes, S&SO, Norwich Meadows, and others.

There are also a wide variety of beautiful peppers at Eckerton, Oak Grove, S&SO, Lani, Norwich, and others. Shushan is back with hydroponic tomatoes and herbs.  Lani has many unusual vegetables and Windfall has unique mini greens and edible flowers.  Northshire, Cherry Lane, D'Attolico, and Gorzynsky are all here with excellent produce. D'Attolico and Hudson Valley also have tasty sprouts.
Buzzard Krest has luscious grapes and grape juices and Red Jacket has fruit flavored apple juices.  Gorzynsky and Stokes have lovely lettuces and Violet Hill has chanterelles and other interesting mushrooms.  Bulich also has excellent mushroom choices.
Quattro's has all kinds of poultry, including pheasants, ducks, and chickens, along with excellent chicken eggs. Violet Hill has pork cuts and sausages, Belle Rouge chickens, and other meats as well as various interesting eggs.
