Visit the Greenmarket, it’ll become your favorite weekend activity

August 16, 2011 1 Comment

Over the weekend I visited the weekly outdoor market, and what a great selection of fresh, local produce they had.  The vibrant colors of fruits and vegetables, the smell of freshly baked goods in the air, and friendly vendors made the experience even more charming.  As I wandered through the market I was instantly inspired by all the fresh ingredients, after all, delicious dishes begin with great ingredients. Some things may get a bit pricey but remember you are paying for the quality. I would definitely recommend visiting the farmers’ market at one of the two locations: Staten island Mall and St. George.

My tips: Get to the market early for best selection, bring cash, and stick to what’s in season. Go for basil this time of year, it is lemony and fresh.

My favorites: Local fresh herb focaccia at Bread Alone and Stawberry Apple Juice from Red Jacket Orchards.
