The City Through My Eyes…

The hustle and the bustle of the Big City.  People abound.  Stopping for lunch at Dick’s.  Street vendors everywhere.  Even the nostalgia Babe Ruth drops in for a visit.

In the midst of the tall buildings and millions of people, the farmer’s market comes to NYC.

The harvest of fresh produce matches my little farmer’s market across the river.  These tomatoes of varying types, look good enough to just take a mouthful.  Several made their way home to NJ and were presented for dinner.

Kirby cucumbers!  Little joke for a few to acknowledge.  So fresh that you had to dust off the dirt right from the farm.

More to come!

aren't the farmer's markets in the city great...Daughter is taking a one day cooking class next month and they are meeting at the Union Square Market buying the produce then going back to the school to cook...but did you get to have real Jersey corn and tomatoes while you were there? Now that is Heaven on a plate...
