Fall Market Report

Alex at Maxwell's Farmstand displays a fine gooseneck gourd

It's fall! It's fall! It's fall and the Greenmarket is overflowing! Oh, I do love summer, with its tank tops, berries, and sun, but nothing beats the produce of fall, when apples and pumpkins and squashes of all colors take center stage. It's all awful pretty. Below, a sampling of some offerings at the Union Square Greenmarket this past Monday:

Non-edible dried wheat. Roommate B will kill me if I bring home more decorative plants, but damn if these didn't tempt me.

Amazing technicolor squashes. Cornucopia much?

Apples! Yes, apples are available year-round, but they're at their crisp, juicy peak now.
