the farmers market

One of the many pleasures of summer in DC is the Saturday morning farmers market in our town square. It begins in late June and runs through the end of October, and Sasha and I shop there every week. Today the temps were cold--55 degrees!--and there was a blustery wind, but that didn't stop the locals (and tourists) from purchasing their locally grown fruits and vegetables. In my shopping bag today: blueberries and carrots--there's a "Bittman salad" in my future--corn, rainbow Swiss chard, and spinach.


  1. 55 in August! There ought to be a law.
    But the produce still looks good. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  2. I love the Union Square Green Market here in NYC...fondly reminds me of the lovely, lovely Farmer's Market in my hometown area of Ithaca, NY!
