GAP Greenmarket open in the Winter?

and if so, has the seafood lady still around?

  1. Don't know about the seafood lady, but the Saturday greenmarket is open all year.

    1. I think the seafood lady is gone for the season, but as of last week the market had Flying Pigs farm, the organic farm with all the buckets of greens and turnips, our daily bread, lynnehaven goatcheese, ronnybrook, the houseplant stand, the apple stand and at least one vegetable stand with really great chard, sweet potatoes, romanesco, broccoli, onions, potatoes, lettuces and herbs, and Tello's eggs is there all year round (thank goodness because those are the bet eggs).

      The market was definitely worth going to.

        all of those were there today - I'm suprised it's not all baked goods at this point, but it's not.
        Tello's LOVE THEM
        Evolutionary Organics has unbelievable sprouts and greens. They seem pricey, but they are so much better (fresher) than what you'll find anywhere else, including the Co-op. The purple mustard is shocking - wasabi sharp but not bitter, great raw if you like that kind of thing.

        Seafood seller usually comes back in March/April.

      2. is there a website that posts who will be there each week? last night we grilled some pork chops that i got there this fall - i remember being horrified at the cost -- it was a single guy who raises them so it may not be flying pigs farm - but omg...the taste! even my daughter who doesn't notice such things said they were amazing. real pork flavor. wow.

          Those were ray bradley's pork chops. best pork around, IMHO. I believe he's gone from christmas until spring, but I haven't been at the market for a few weeks, so i'm not sure.

          He's definitely out of pork chops--i tried to buy some last time I saw him and they were long gone. He doesn't raise enough pigs to meet his demand.
