Spring at the Greenmarket
BY HERMINE MARIAUX

Spring is here - on the calendar and in the garden - abnormally cool temperatures notwithstanding. And to witness fresh arrivals at the Turtle Bay Greenmarket in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza Park, Mother Nature knows it too, and will not be denied the season! Much to our delight, the decision to not have a market on Saturdays in addition to Wednesdays was reversed and thus we now have Greenmarket twice a week.

The first field greens are here: Mesclun of baby lettuces, lush Bibbs, even young Worrel for tangy soups and sauces. Leeks and local green asparagus are here, a good selection of fresh herbs, both cut and in pots, along with crisp ruby red radishes, and best of all, fresh cut rhubarb.
Exciting new additions to the Greenmarket include breads, pastries, muffins, cookies and giant brioches at the "Not Just Rugelach" stand, and artisan cheeses by Cato Corner Farm. They'll even let you taste before you buy . . . smooth and rich Bridgid's Abbey, Wisconsin Colby, and soft and pungent Fromage d' O'Cow & Hooligan, among other handmade treasures.

And if you have sworn off calories, there are geraniums, begonias, pansies and impatiens to grace your balcony or window.

The Greenmarket is a treat!
