Greenmarket: How I love thee

So it's pretty clear that I do have a lot of free time and the best way to occupy this precious time is heading over to Union Squares Greenmarket! They are there on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Saturdays have the largest turnout since its the weekend and there's just an abundance of fresh and local produce as well as baked goods, ostrich and emu eggs, an assortment of meats and a bunch of other things. Trust will not leave empty handed! So be ready with lots of moolah as they take cash only but I've seen some transactions go on but I think those are for the more $$$ items.
Anywhoo, I decided to head over to the market after lunch with a friend earlier today. I didn't think I was going to buy anything but I couldn't help buying just a few things.

Here are just the few that I couldn't bare to leave without...

romanesco cauliflower

aren't they amazing or what? Just treat them like you
would a normal cauliflower or brocolli, you can eat them
raw too...its quite sweet.

pretty awesome carrots i must say...i just love
these heirloom varieties. Did you know red carrots are
red because they were grown in soil that red beets were grown in?

I'm still deciding what to do with the romanesco cauliflowers but as for the carrots...I think i'll be sous vide-ing them. I'll let you know how it turns out!
