Back to NYC Greenmarket: 3/7/2009

green_market_shopping.jpg

Since moving back to New Jersey last summer, visiting New York City’s Greenmarket has been a rare event. However, I’d like to continue my effort of eating locally and sharing my culinary adventure. I took advantage of an excellent weather yesterday and biked down to Union Sqaure Greenmarket (14st. street between Broadway and Park Ave.) to check out new produce and other wonderful ingredients. I saw many familiar faces and I wasn’t hesitant to splurge on this week’s groceries.

Guinea Pig’s Shopping Bag:

Produce:

  • 1 tomatoe (size of a softball): $3.00
  • 1 handful of salad greens (less than 1/4 pound): $2.60
  • 3 apples (not in the picture): $1.00

Meat:

  • 1 lb. sliced beef, for cheese steak: 11.00

Bread:

  • 1 loaf of French baguette: $3.00

Total Spending: $20.60

p.s: I got a little rusty on taking pictures of my grocery. I promise to have better pictures next time.

    Hey, I saw this blog and I just wanted to add some information about a MetroCard Deal at all 50 Greenmarkets throughout NYC. I work for MTA New York City Transit and we partnered with Greenmarkets, who are offering a free reusable bag when you show your MetroCard to the vendor. You have to hurry, though, only the first 50 people to show their MetroCard will receive a bag. For a list of all the Greenmarkets in NYC, visit www.cenyc.org and use Trip Planner to get directions there
