besides going down to union square, our neighborhood market currently consists of apples, onions, potatoes, and a whole lot of baked goods to make up for the fact that it's still winter in the fruits and veggies department. obviously this isn't a problem on the west coast. california's fresh strawberries tasted like the entire month of july (i ate a whole box) and oh my gosh the citrus. the citrus! lemon this and blood orange that and a citrus muffin topped with orange marmalade for the plane ride home. please and thank you.
there are only so many strawberries and tangerines one can consume in a four day time span and i have little self control at a farmers' market.
i'm still working on my bag of tangerines that were carefully stuffed inside ed's sneakers for the flight home. i also realize that whole foods in nyc likely sells those same tangerines shipped from california.
