Morningside Almanac: Week of 8/30

yummers

An apple a day...

Wondering what all those tents on Broadway between 114th and 116th are?  Wonder no more: it’s the Columbia Greenmarket!  Every Thursday and Sunday the market is here with tons of fresh goodies to augment your, ah, nutritious and filling John Jay/Ferris/Koronets diet.  Each Thursday, Bwog has the highlights:

  • It’s nearly September, meaning TONS OF DELICIOUS FRESH FOODS!  Tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, apples, pears, winter squash, the possibilities are endless!
  • Through November 15th Health Bucks are at the market.  Spend $5 with EBT and get a $2 coupon for fruits and veggies.  Visit Market Information to participate
  • From 9 am until supplies last today, visit Market Info for a free reusable bag–all you need to do is spend $15 at any one stand, turn in plastic bags for reuse, and sign the Pass on Plastic pledge
  • Hawthorne Valley Farm, a Sunday market staple, will be here today with certified organic and biodynamic produce, dairy, baked goods, and lacto-fermented vegetables from Columbia County
  • On Sunday at noon join Lori Weisenberg-Catalano, an accomplished cook and Gonzalez Farms CSA member, who will be cooking market fresh tomato sauce.  Learn and enjoy free samples
The market accepts credit, debit, and EBT.
