union square greenmarket

we usually stick to the market in our hood, but cooler temps put us in a walking mood and we decided to branch out. if you're looking for variety, union square greenmarket is the place to be. it's also the place to be if you want to have an anxiety attack fighting crowds of people to buy a bag of apples. but that's new york in general, i suppose.

i'm a week behind on editing personal photos for the blog. i feel the need to tell you this as opposed to being all... "this is what we did this weekend! it was magical!" it was magical LAST weekend.

do you get overwhelmed at the market? i always shy away from the random vegetables i don't know what to do with and hoard fruit like the apocalypse is coming.

end the day at city bakery with a soy cappuccino and enormous chocolate chip cookie.

Ohh, that market looks really beautiful. I'm yet to find a market with good radishes, but those look great!

i love the union square greenmarket! when we were last visiting nyc, my boyfriend and i rented an apartment, so we could cook, and did most of our grocery shopping at the market...it was great! so fresh + delicious + fun. it was one of my best memories of nyc, actually. :)

That sounds like me right now, with my backlog of photos sitting on my desktop. But these are all such beautiful, colourful pictures. I need to find the market here, I've missed stopping by for fruits.

The farmers market I go to in Boston is totally overwhelming and crowded. I have to go in with determination and a list otherwise I wander around in a complete daze.

And I have go-to veggies that I always buy. I don't often venture out and buy new ones as I don't know what to do with them and I'm afraid they'll just go bad in the crisper (which my husband has aptly named "the rot box.")

Beautiful photos of LAST weekend!

This reminds me of the ferry building farmers' market in San Francisco - we prefer the smaller ones in Union Square and Fillmore Center. Bit the ferry building is the place to be! Beautiful photos, as usual!

The last pic. is my favorite! What beautiful blue skies you had!

Becca said...

Yes, I agree with Victoria... love that darling skirt and shirt combo and that gigantic cappuccino in a REAL mug. Loverly!

No better way to end a day buying fruit and vegetables than by eating a giant chocolate chip cookie. That's definitely how I like to do it.

I could go for a big giant cookie right about now.

I used to live a few blocks from there and went super early in the morning...all other times are anxiety inducing to no end. And once I was all excited about buying this ridiculously delicious looking bread and when I went to pay the guy said "$12" I thought I misheard...nope, $12 for a tiny loaf of bread that I could have easily eaten by myself in one sitting (what? I'm hungry!)...I left without buying it and obviously I've never gotten over it.

And the City Bakery...YOU KNOW how much I love that place.

I visited these markets when I was in NYC last September - LOVED it! It was busy, but not as busy as some for the Farmers Markets we have here in Sydney - we love a good farmers market "down under".

Your dry humor never fails to make me laugh. The photos are lovely and it looks like you guys had a great time.
