February Farmers Market


Union Square, Saturday. I knew there would be potatoes.


I knew there would be cheese. And did not know but was happy to find that my friend Ty was manning the Cato Corner Farm cheese stall. He has been a tall, friendly fixture at the market for all my New York years. Generous tastings followed and we left with several delicious wedges of Jersey cheese.


I bought salad for the humans.


And salad for the cat. His leaves cost more but will last longer.


And Jerusalem artichokes, which I like best raw, in a thinly-sliced crunchy slaw.


And red carrots, which will be grated and tossed with orange juice and mint, which persists on the terrace.


There were fall apples and pears, but I was not ready for them,  still clinging in memory to the fruit of summer, many days and a hemisphere behind me.


There were beautiful anemones, which I just looked at.


And a blooming truck.


And a false spring.


I resisted the urge to buy violas. I'll give myself two weeks.
