FARMER MARKET FUN • then Lunch

We schlepp to the farmers market every Sunday morning and load up for the week.

My favorite farmers are always there………..flowers……….veggies……..cheese and fresh fish from Long Island.

When I get it home………….I love to photograph it all before I cook it.

Purple beans with garlic….okra…..fish with grilled squash and tomatoes.

Chickpeas salad……….spinach pie……….and Cosmos.

YUM YUM YUM……….having a “taste” before my guests arrive.  It is 89º today and I am wilting fast!  [The flowers seem to love it].

 

 

BETHESDA FOUNTAIN in Central Park

The Bethesda Angel looks her best in the summer……….  her pool  is filled with water lillies.

In 1868, Emma Stibbens was given the commission to design the largest fountain in NYC..  She was the first woman in New York City to receive such a commission.

Beth’s Farm Kitchen…………Mon Wed Fri and Sat at the Union Square Farmers Market for sensationally delicious……. Jellys, Jams, Marmalade and Lemon Curd.

LUNCH on the Terrace on a lovely Saturday afternoon

Julie is visiting from France so I put together a vegetarian lunch and invited Barbara and Paul to join us.

Paul baked a cheesecake…………it was sublime.

PETAL PLANTS and FLOWERS

Every Sunday morning you can find me behind the Museum of Natural History

where local farmers set up their stands.

My friends always ask me “where do you get all those plants and flowers in your garden”.

I get them from my friend Al [at my local farmers market]………. every Sunday morning].
