NYC Guide: Union Square Greenmarket

Something I don’t do nearly often enough: make my way down to the Union Square Greenmarket on the weekends. This is the time of year that the market really comes to life, with amazing produce, fresh flowers, tons of plants, and pretty much anything else your foodie heart could desire – meat, cheese, jams, yogurt – all refreshingly devoid of the gross chemicals and preservatives present in all too many grocery store items. There are typically over 100 farmers and purveyors at the market, which is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. I’m not much of a cook so that’s part of why I don’t make my way over there too often, but now that I’ve discovered the crazy gorgeous ranunculus and anemones they’ve had recently, I’ve become newly devoted and determined to get myself down there more often! Read on to see some photos I took on my last Union Square outing…

I looooove flowering branches! I should probably get some for my apartment, but I’m always afraid they might fall over since they’re so tall.

      Hah no worries! Organic food often is uglier than conventional groceries, because conventional groceries typically are GMO and bred to look pretty! Kind of interesting – nature makes ugly veggies but to me, that makes them beautiful in a sense!

      • Must agree here 🙂 Btw, do you edit your pictures or do simple touch ups with the shadows etc? They look so amazing and I wish my images looked as good as yours.
