******************************

 

Contrary to what you might think, New Yorkers do not eat all of their meals at Starbucks or pizza joints. Nor do they buy all of their food at supermarkets or corner delis.

 

We also buy our food at farmer's markets, where organically grown fruits, vegetables, cheese, and other items are brought from farms in nearby New Jersey and upstate New York. Some of these are large and noisy, some specialize in ethnic foods; and some operate every day, with great fanfare and publicity.

 

But then there are the neighborhood farmer's markets, many of which operate only one day a week. In my neighborhood, it's Fridays mornings: on 97th Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus, you can find an assortment of beans and beets, tomatoes and potatoes, carrots and garlic, peaces and cucumbers.

 

These photos will give you an idea of the kind of food that many of us are lucky enough to enjoy...
