Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket

posted in: Life | 0

It occurred to me a few days ago that I hadn’t blogged in a long time.  The reason is that we moved to the new apartment and have been busy building furniture, and then unpacking all the boxes that finally arrived a couple of weeks ago.  That is not an excuse, but it is the reason.  We are still not fully unpacked, we are waiting on some new furniture to arrive so we can finally store all our stuff, but we are well on our way to making this place picture ready.

I’ve always heard about farmers markets in the north, and how good they are, but I had never really experienced them.  Not only have I never lived in the north as a cooking adult, but the couple of farmers markets I went to in Florida were pretty much a joke.  I’ve been eager to go to the one near our place ever since I found out about it, but I had been very busy with the whole move thing. So, on the first Saturday that we didn’t actually have to dedicate to settling in, we went to the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket in Brooklyn.  The market is run by GrowNYC, an organization that runs several other green markets around the city.  It was busy, but there was so much produce! There also was meat, seafood, baked goods, etc. the best part is that everything is local, or as local as it can be in New York City.
