City Hall Farmer's Market Report?
Did anyone check out the City Hall market today? Curious to hear what the finds (and prices!) were like. Are peaches and corn in yet?
Unfortunately, I was out of town today, but I can tell you that they did indeed have both peaches and corn last week - and they were both sweet and delicious!
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.
