Even on a rainy day in New York you can still find outdoor farmers’ markets throughout the city. This one is called the 67th Street Farmers’ Market.
I visited this weekend and it was almost empty of people but filled with fresh produce dewy and glistening from the rain.
I like going to this market because it is just a few block’s from my friend’s apartment and they always have lots of samples of everything. The added attraction is that inside the building next door is a flea market that often has amazing finds.
I spotted the perfect gift for my friend, but then I realized she really didn’t have enough sun for this wonderful little salad bowl planter. What a great idea. A city garden salad mix.
Frank Sinatra came from Hoboken. So does Hoboken Farms! I loved their sign with a cow rising up amongst the high rises………..
I love this pickle guy. I stop for his horseradish pickles, but they are all superb. Artisan pickles, pickled with love.
…..and the Polish stall always has a good variety of fresh pirogi I can take back and heat up for dinner…..this one is a winner.
…..okay, so this stall tells me that this honey is local. It is from beekeepers who keep their bees on the rooftops of the city….I couldn’t figure out where they would find enough flowers to produce all this honey, but it was worth a try!
So even though it was pouring, even though it was a bit cold this weekend in NYC, I went home with arms full of wonderful food. Love NYC. Love farmers’ markets.
