[Farmer's Market Series # 3] Union Square Greenmarket, New York City



It has been more than SIX months since I moved to New York City. Say what? Time just flew and it sure took time for me to adjust to this new New Yorker lifestyle. I still feel like an alien in a mad world that is always is a rush to reach somewhere. There are tons of places to see and so many things to do in New York City. It will be a wishful thinking on my part if I aspire to do them all, but there are a few must-visit places and Union Square Green Market is definitely on top of the list. So, on a fairly overcast Saturday morning, we set off to explore the city as much as we can. The plan was to meet at the market and then move on to other places like Brooklyn Bridge, China Town, Little Italy, Chelsea Market etc. 

This post is a part of the Farmer's Market Series I do whenever I visit a new city. First one was on Mountain View (California) and another featuring a market from back home. It has been a while since the last feature and am so thrilled that I could be photograph this beautiful NYC market filled with gorgeous seasonal produce and artisanal products. Enjoy!

Saturdays, as am told are wickedly crowded and try on Wednesday mornings for some quiet shopping and also may be for some celebrity Chef spotting as well!

I love everything about this photograph - from neatly stacked bottles to the bright hues of the tomato sauce.

  3. Awesome coverage Siri! Now that I am back in India I miss that joy of being at Farmers market, the sight, the colors, the smell and the air. Wish you a wonderful summer.
