Morningside Park Farmers’ Market

The Morningside Park Farmers’ Market is open on Saturdays from 9 to 5, rain or shine. One of the benefits of this location is that you can stroll through the park, before loading up on fresh food.

And there’s always something going on in Morningside Park.

Last Saturday, a young athlete pitched a strike in the girls’ softball game.

On a nearby field, a few fans, looking like something from the last act of Our Town, beat the heat to watch the big boys play.

On the basketball court, little guys played one-on-onewhile dog walkers steered their hounds past rotting chicken bones and mounds of garbage left by Friday night’s barbecue hordes. Okay, so it’s not all good news.

Still, despite the litter, geese and turtles relaxed in the pond

and a handsome black pigeon went down to the water’s edge for a drink

At the market by the park’s southeastern entrance, shoppers lingered over the admirable produce.

Peaches, radishes, carrots, turnips and greens.

Gorgeous fresh fish from Montauk

Also, bread and pastries, nuts, meat

and pickles galore right from the barrel

The Market manager minded the stall for Tierra Farms

What more can I tell you?
