City Hall Farmer's Market Report?
I was there today and it was busy. I picked up some heirloom tomatoes, baby squash, and green beans...all for $10. Peaches....6 for $3.50. Corn (so incredibly sweet) 50 cents and ear...I only got two ears. Blueberries, $4 ...I think it's a pint. Peas - $2.50 a pint. And butter tarts....$4.50 for six. I had such a wonderful dinner!!!
Today I bought zucchini blossoms ($4), big & toothsome green peas ($2.50), plump blackberries (don't remember the price), and gnarly but heavenly fingerling potatoes ($4). Tomorrow I'm heading over to the farmers' market at Metro Hall - not as big, but still convenient for those of us working in the financial district.
My haul yesterday...
Beautiful sweet peas $2.50 small carton
Nice green beans $3
Beautiful fat red peppers - about 20 for $2.50
Borlotti beans - $4 for medium carton
Beefsteak tomatoes, really tasty - $4 for 5
Small new garlic - $2.50 for small basket, about 12 heads
Didn't get, but looked great...
Melon, corn, new onions, broccoli, cauliflower, gooseberries, new potatoes.
Wasn't 100% impressed with the early new haven peaches I got last week.
