First visit to greenmarket this year

Mabel and I finally made it to the Union Square Greenmarket today for the first (and maybe only) time all year. We had such plans back in the spring, but our schedules didn't line up, we'd been keeping too busy, and our kitchen was down for a while. We bought a double-thick in-bone shell steak at Florence, the same cut we tried at BLT Prime, and headed over to the greenmarket for some accompaniments.

We got our annual decorative pumpkin, some French breakfast radishes, wild arugula, celery greens, and purple carrots. I didn't realize the purple carrots were not purple inside until later. We picked up enough vegetables, but Mabel saw a bunch of beautiful Italian dandelion greens and we brought that home too.

Hopefully we'll get a chance to come back before there's nothing but potatoes and onions.
