Market Watch: Himrod Grapes

It always feels special to me when grapes make their appearance at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket. It means that although there is still plenty of summer produce to be had, autumn is just around the corner. These seedless himrod grapes are sweet and juicy, though their flesh is less firm than my ideal grape. I was happy to see the Market so busy this morning; post-Irene many local farmers suffered damage to their crops or to their farms. Help them out by stopping by your local Greenmarket!

  1. I’ve been visiting a lot of greenmarkets lately. I can’t afford to buy everything I want, but I still ‘treat’ myself to a honeycrisp apple whenever I see a vendor selling them.
