I’m a modern girl but I can appreciate many things outside of modernity. In a society where we can order our groceries (guilty!), every now and then it feels nice to visit a farmer’s market and be among people.
This past Wednesday, my guy and I trolled down to Union Square (with toddler in tow) and saw what the Greenmarket had to offer. It was a gorgeous day and it seems that mid-week is the best time to visit the market since most of the farmers/vendors are there. I hadn’t been to a farmer’s market since I was pregnant with my Little HIM so I was super excited.
It was a total win for us: good weather, fresh air, and organic goodies like honey, spinach ravioli, fruit and whatnot. Next time I have to get there earlier so I can nab a few bags of spinach linguine.
If you plan on heading out to a NYC Farmer’s Market, here’s a few Tinka Tips:
1. Have cash on hand. This is a common sense kind of thing. Some vendors may have iPhone/iPad card swipers, but take cash just in case. Don’t assume.
2. Most likely you’re going on a nice, sunny day, so…WEAR SUNSCREEN.
3. Take your own bag(s).
4. If you’re not sure of something you see, just ask. They are more than willing to help.
5. Try the samples. You don’t want buyer’s remorse. Plus, they’re free.
Have fun and stock up!
