Yet another new-to-me farmer's market today. Well, not exactly today today since today is Monday and this market is only on Saturdays. But I went this last Saturday and I am posting it for you today. It is also technically not "new-to-me"since I was here once before, but that was when I was helping at a stand so basically I was there at 6:30 am to set up and left at like 8, not really looking around.
Now that we've gotten that all cleared up, here is the Grand Army Plaza market, just north of Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
I took the bus down Nostrand Avenue and walked along tree-lined Eastern Parkway to get there. Lots of people far more motivated than I run along this stretch. I strolled, keeping my eyes out for coffee.
You walk past both the Brooklyn Museum, with the fountain outside and usually pretty fantastic exhibits inside...
and the main Brooklyn Public Library:
Perks of outdoor grocery shopping? You can bring the pooch. And throw husks on the ground right there! Yeah! Damn the man!
Leaving the market, the arch:
I didn't buy anything all that exciting, hence the extensive 'hood tour. I got a peach, which I ate right away and was not mindblowing, the okra you saw in the salad yesterday and two tomatoes.
Gluten-free brown rice bread with Tofutti, tomato, hot sauce (not from the market), and scallions (still going strong from the market uhhh...two weeks ago? I put em in a glass with water.)
And, well, gosh, that's it for now. Perhaps something extraordinary tomorrow.
