Quick stop by Union Square Greenmarket

We stopped by the Union Square Greenmarket right before the movie, just to browse.

We came across some late season peaches. I was smelling one of them when the farmer came by, picked one out of his bucket, and said, "Here, try this one."

It was the best peach I had this year, which I guess isn't saying much, but still. Anyway, what a good salesperson. I bought half a dozen and ate all of them by the next day. It was sort of a mixed batch. Half of them were good, the other half were mealy and a bit dry. Mabel was really excited by the peach pies they were selling and bought one.

But the real find of the day was a huge celeriac weighing in at 2 lbs 11 ounces. Patricia Wells says that a medium one is typically 1 lb.

It is sort of the Charlie Brown of vegetables. Actually, it somehow reminds me more of the baby from Eraserhead.

We also picked up some handsome cherry tomatoes.
