Quick Update: just wanted to share a photo of the Peach-Blueberry Cobbler I made with the fruit I bought at the Greenmarket today!

I took a trip to the Schenectady Greenmarket today, and picked up some wonderful produce.  I thought I’d share the pics with you:
Our Daily Bread's booth.  I bought some whole wheat bread and some challah.

I felt weird about asking vendors to allow me to take pictures, but I finally worked up the nerve and asked Lisa Zaccaglini of Mu Mu Muesli if she’d let me take her picture.  She was so nice!  And their muesli is absolutely incredible – full of coconut, dates, raisins, flaxseeds and almonds…and they are not stingy with the almonds, either!  Good stuff.  Thanks Lisa!

Lots of good stuff at the markets this week – berries, stone fruits, greens, potatoes, tomatoes, radishes, all kinds of lettuces, potatoes, herbs, and a lot more. 

Just a reminder: Schenectady Greenmarket happens every Sunday from 10am-2pm, around City Hall in Downtown Schenectady.  Their website is www.schenectadygreenmarket.com.

And, if you happen to work in Schenectady, you’ll want to check out the Thursday farmer’s market, from 9:30am-1:30pm, also at City Hall.   Info on other Farmer’s Markets in Schenectady County here.

Keep your eye out for next week’s Market Report!
