Union Square is my hands-down favorite market. Not only does it offer a bounty of the area’s best produce, it’s a great spot to catch up with my chef friends before we head into work. I pop out of bed on Wednesday mornings in the spring and summer with the excitement of a kid at Christmas…and to make sure I get there before ABC Kitchen’s Dan Kluger buys all of the strawberries!

Union Square Greenmarket
Capturing vibrant colors is a wonderful way to experience new equipment and what better place to do just that than at a local farmers’ market. One of New York City’s largest, the Union Square Greenmarket started in 1976 and today in peak season has up to 140 regional farmers, fishers, and bakers selling their delicacies. Snack as you explore the stalls, pack a picnic lunch or simply stock up for later with plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, breads, jams, flowers, wine, maple syrup and more to fill your stomach and pantry. Open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
