the greenmarket will be open on sunday as scheduled. hoping all the usual vendors made it through the storm in good shape. many of them were hit hard last year by Irene, but it seems as if those areas upstate fared better this time around.

    Thanks for the heads up Deb. My girlfriend asked me today if the greenmarket would be in action, and I said Yes, I read about it on Chowhound.

    Stopped by the greenmarket today around 10:30..I noticed a new maple candy vendor that I swiftly sidestepped. So many apples to choose from, I brought home 4 or 5 varieties. Now its time for butternut squash.

    Has anyone ever tried the Mexican food vendors at the greenmarket?

      glad you were able to make it out!

      yes, most definitely. the flautas are my favorites. there's sometimes a lady making gorditas and tostadas as well, though i am not sure if she was there today. the tamale folks are out in force, one, and i am not sure which, off hand, also sells a Oaxacan tamale (banana leaf instead of corn husk, square, and heftier).
