Wordless Tuesday- NYC Green Market

by cakeduchess on October 23, 2012 · 19 comments












I was going to originally make this a Wordless Wednesday post but thought why not post it on a Tuesday instead.;) This past weekend we had the opportunity to spend some time in New York City with my family. I haven’t experienced real fall weather in years. It was such a treat to feel the cool and crisp air on the morning we were walking to the Union Square green market in the East Village of NYC. The produce was incredible. Carrots and potatoes of every color you can imagine. Some colors I’ve never even seen here in Florida. There was amazing cheese to be sampled and freshly baked goods. Pumpkins were to be found on every angel of the market in every shape possible. I hope you enjoy some photos I took as I strolled around trying not to lose my family (it was packed with people!). I’ll be back on Thursday with a recipe. Do you have a post with photos of a green market? Link it up in your comment-I’d love to see it!

I love the union square green market! Instead of going there this saturday though, we went to the Halloween dog parade in the East village. It was amazing in a whole different way! :)

I love this market. It’s about 6 blacks from my apt and I don’t get there often enough. Lovely photos.

Oh, how I miss this market! We lived in NYC for a few years and I headed to this market whenever I could. Your photos brought back some very good memories.

What a great time to be there! We don’t get to see piles of squash and such here in Florida! I love those carrots too!

Love this post Miss Lora. I was in Union market I think last winter. Was kinda gloomy, scarce but I love how it came alive! A perfect weather and bountiful season to visit. :) Never thought of it I must be taking it for granted the distinct seasonal change! Lovely trip you had there girl!

That is probably the most incredible market I’ve seen.. in real life or in photos, lol! I can’t believe the size of the veggies.. and the colors and massive bunches of carrots, the squash.. I really enjoyed seeing your market today!

I have never ever been to the Union Square market in all the years I lived and visited and your photos have made me push it to the top of my must-visit list for the next trip. Gorgeous day, fabulous trip, lucky you!

I love New York and Boston in the fall. So happy for you that you were able to make the trip with your family. It’s one of the best times to travel there.

These pictures are wonderful. I wish I had been there. The Union Square Market is one of my favorite NYC spots. I write about my finds at one of my other favorite (much smaller) farmer markets here: http://bowlfulofcomfort.blogspot.com/2012/10/farmer-market-finds-mushrooms-apples.html
