Greenmarket in winter

After the Thanksgiving holiday passes, even the Union Square Farmers Market starts to look a little desolate. There are still a few farmers who bring hardy greens (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kales & mustard greens) but the overall colors are definitely turning to an earthy tone. I imagine the days when there was no supermarket that carries tomatoes and lettuce all year around.

The dinner menu in winter becomes quite a challenge without the array of fresh produce from this market. But I savor what's available, and keep dreaming of the first sight of ramps.
