The Greenmarkets are so amazing in August.  As summer winds down, there has been some food highlights at the farms.  Watermelon and peaches have been incredible this year.   Tomatoes not as sweet.  Interesting how the weather over the course of the year makes a flavor difference.  My favorite vendor out here is Browder’s Birds who shows up weekly in East Hampton at Nick & Toni’s on Friday mornings at the Greenmarket.  The chickens are so incredible that I haul at least 10 frozen ones back to the city with me.

These pics are from the Montauk farmers market…definitely the biggest one of the week on Thursday mornings.  The flowers are amazing.


Every tomato you can imagine.


Even Carissa comes out!



Fish dips…really yummy for a good appetizer plate.

Crumb cakes

There is also the pickle man, the beautiful plums, the Italian loaves of bread and more.  It is just so good that I have a hard time not returning to the house with loads of goodies!

    Nice–huge fan and constant shopper at Union Square.Though need to say that the Sat morning market in Venice on Main and the Thursday one in Santa Monica are pretty damn good.

    Have you tried the pickle bread from Carissa? It is so amazing. I am addicted to everything she makes and have become a regular. Thank you for the recommendation Jo.

      OMG. That sounds amazing! I make homemade Spicy Triple Dill pickles. I bet they would be great in bread. https://uploads.disquscdn.c
