One of the benefits of my chosen profession as a wedding photographer is a flexible schedule during the week that allows me to indulge in the wonderful greenmarkets here in New York City.  I’m often up with the chefs, first to the market, to ensure I get the best selection.  Union Square is my personal favorite and I’ve grown to love my morning visits to speak with the farmers and getting to know not only the beautifully healthy bounty that they grow but them personally.   My wife and I are spoiled with the freshness, and have learned for instance how tell the difference between a fish caught that morning in Montauk from one caught the previous day. We are also increasingly tied to the seasonal changes as well as spells of bad weather which all effect whats available and quality.    In the dead of winter we are dreaming about summer heirloom tomatoes, spring ramps, mid-summer raspberries, red oak lettuce and the multitude of local produce available at peak only during sort periods.

I thought I would share the beginnings of a personal project I am working on to document local foods, the people that grow them and the places they come from. Here are a few from last fall.

Keith’s Farm Rocambole Garlic.  Characterized by a hard stem, purplish and orange colored membrane around the cloves, crunchy and more spicing and full flavored then soft neck garlic.  Garlic is great this time of year, not only because it stores well, but it helps boost the immune system to fend of colds.

Keith’s farm Kueka Gold potatoes and white onionsDried Okra from my wife’s family farm in North Carolina.

Hotbread Kitchen’s baguettes: “Great with Cheese”!!!!

Tamarack Hill farm’s Blue Hubbard Squash, All the way from my native Burlington, Vermont to Union Square every Wednesday!

Norwich Meadows Brussel Sprouts on the stalk.

    Hey Bobby! Through our friendship, I've been re-connected with the healthy pleasure of produce from the Farmers Market (Union Sq). Your commitment to maintaining this balance of wellness is one of the many qualities I admire you for. Thanks for the inspiration + sharing.
