Hawthorne is there today as if the dairy guy, the fish man, the baker from NJ, and others. Many more than last week.....I got eggs from Joey, the hilarious curmudgeon AKA the mushroom man. His eggs are great.....

Madura, although you'd never know that, since he does not put up a canopy. just look for the mushrooms -- he's the only vendor to have them

I think it's about timing re: eggs. They tend to run out early but I am usually successful when I get there before 9am.

The grains stand is at the market today. https://www.grownyc.org/grains/wheretobuy Looks like it will be there today and two other Sundays.

third Sunday of each month. picked up a couple bags of beans today. they do something i really like -- put the packing/milling date on each bag. both the beans and flour i bought were prepared less than ten days ago, which i appreciate.
fwiw, the owner/manager at American Seafood can rattle off catch dates, too, and let you know if you have one, two or more days of wiggle room in storing stuff in the fridge.

I'm not sure if our greenmarket will be affected by this, but I could imagine that if SNAP benefits are not accepted, sales might go way down, and fewer people will be able to access the greenmarket food.

it'll be horrible for consumers and farmers, but the so-called "blue apron" boxes the so-called president wants to send out in lieu of fresh food availability will certainly help unload warehouses full of expired canned goods.

I picked up a couple of Heirloom tomatoes at the greenmarket today. Hoping to match the flavor of some tomatoes I recently ate in a Greek salad at the fairly new restaurant Akrotiri in Astoria.  :)

It’s slim pickings at the greenmarket today. There are no produce stands, no apples. There is a bakery, grains, fish, pork/meat, turkey and eggs. Also compost and textiles.

Thanks, Shelby. There wasn't too much when I went last weekend either, but there were at least apples. I was just thinking about heading over, but I may now reconsider.
