Farmer Market Finds

Last Saturday at Abingdon Square Greenmarket: On an attempted shopping spree in the West Village, we passed by a farmer market and the day suddenly transforms into a veggie splurge and later into a luscious dinner feast.

In Season now: Eggplants, sweet and sour green & red tomatoes, purple basil…excellent ingredients for a pasta primavera!
