« A Trip to the Farmer's Market [June 4, 2011] »

Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, this will probably be one of the last weekends I spend in the city.  I am leaving for Italy next weekend (for a much needed vacation), and then I am looking forward to many fun weekends on Eastern Long Island with family and friends.

In the meantime, I was up bright and early to see what the Tribeca Green Market had to offer. And as expected, it did not disappoint:

I saw peonies at Latham's Farm Stand in Orient last weekend, but didn't think they would survive the 3 hour drive back to the city.  Pout.

No matter. Good things come to those who wait. I bought these peonies this morning, and they are georgeous.

 A quart of fresh strawberries

 (Hot house) tomatoes and field grown basil

Baby beets.  Where is the goat cheese? (Answer: in the refrigerator. Beet and goat cheese salad is on the menu for Sunday night dinner.)

Baby red onions

Asparagus

Seedless cucumbers
