Fava beans! At Eckerton and, until Jean Georges got them, at Norwich Meadows! Queen Anne and red cherries at Locust Grove! Strawberries at many stands, including Stokes, Phillips, Eckerton, and others.

Sugar snaps, fava beans, mesclun, English peas, and the first of their peppers at Eckerton. Rhubarb and asparagus at Hoeffner! Gorgeous hot house heirloom tomatoes, asparagus, strawberries, and other goodies at Cherry Lane. Cherry tomatoes, strawberries, cut herbs, lettuces, and other salad greens and vegetables at Stokes.

I was very early this morning and some stands were just setting up. The market is really beautiful today, with all sorts of flower options and many stands with greens. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera, but last week's report has many pictures and it is truly even more rich and glorious today.
