I approach the Union Square Greenmarket in much the same way as I go to Rhinebeck. I have a plan. First I do online research and take notes. What vendors do others recommend? What's looking good? When I arrive there, my plan is to walk around, look at everything and to jot notes on the places I want to return to.
Then I get to Union Square (or Rhinebeck) and become overwhelmed
by the merchandise and colors. Notes? Plans? What notes and plans??? Yep, just like Rhinebeck!
I go to the greenmarket for the ostrich eggs---NOT!
I went for the tomatoes. I just love, love, love tomatoes this time of year!
Here's my bounty--tomatoes and a few other things.
I immediately made myself lunch from some of these goodies
At least I controlled myself enough that I didn't start gobbling tomatoes before I got home.
One time I went to Rhinebeck and wound yarn in the parking lot. And if I had needles with me, I probably would have started knitting something from the yarn. I'm not known for my restraint when it comes to yarn (or tomatoes.)
