Rock Center Greenmarket Returns in September

Rock Center Greenmarket

Are you a Rock Center worker that’s been wondering what’s happened to the annual Greenmarket? For the past few years, it’s magically appeared for about a month or so starting in late July, but this year there’s been a Koons topiary taking up valuable space. No worries, my friends, we will be eating pumpkin whoopie pies soon enough: the Greenmarket is scheduled to return every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from September 10th to October 10th. Just in time for gourds.

A sure sign of summer is the reopening of the Rockefeller Center Greenmarket (Rockefeller Plaza btn 50+51st) this morning at 8am. The market will run every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8am until 4pm with a rotating roster of Greenmarket regulars, until August 30th. Time to gorge yourself with apple cider doughnuts and whoopie pies all in the name of supporting your local foodshed. Extra bonus points if you spot an NBC celebrity!

Check Out the New Stuff at Dag Hammarskjold

Pumpkins

My usual Wednesday lunch time ritual of stopping by the Dag Hammarskjold market (on 47th+2nd) was interrupted there for a few weeks partly due to the fact that I wasn’t cooking at home too often. Evidently I was missing out not only on seeing the first incoming pumpkins (summer is officially done), but also on some new lunch-like offerings from the vendors.

The Weather is Perfect For the Dag Hammarskjold Farmers Market

Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

It’s springtime! OK, not yet. But it feels…like springtime! And if 50 degrees isn’t enough to get you crawling out into the sunlight, then maybe the freshest outdoor lunch options in Midtown East will. Every Wednesday year-round, local farmers fill Dag Hammarskjold Plaza on 47th & 2nd with everything from fruit to focaccia. You can also stop by for chicken empanadas, chocolate whoopee pies, and strawberry apple cider all on the same block. The best part? You can get all of the above for under $10.

A just out of bounds spinach and mozz quiche the size of your face after the jump…
