Photo of the Day: Union Square Greenmarket, NYC

While on my way to a bookstore on 12th Street, I came across the Union Square Greenmarket. What began relatively quietly in 1976 has now grown into an ongoing event that, at the height of the season, may see 140 regional farmers, fishers, and bakers sell their products. 

The market is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays year-round, but I suspect that it’s especially busy Saturdays, when visitors will encounter collections for food scraps and clothing, cooking demonstrations led by the Natural Gourmet Institute, a Beer and Spirits of New York pop-up, and book signings.
