I’m a Sucker For Chips on a Sandwich

I usually prefer fritos or cheetos in my sandwiches, but beet chips could work too!  Blondie and Brownie hit up the Rock Center Greenmarket last Friday, and had this inspired lunch from Katchkie Farms: turkey sandwich stuffed with beet chips and a delicious looking bowl of cold zucchini soup. If you’re still deciding where to eat today, this looks like a damn good choice. (The Greenmarket is open Wednesday through Friday, but Katchkie Farms is only there on Fridays.  On Thursdays you can find them, and this sandwich, at the new Port Authority Greenmarket.)

Rock Center Greenmarket is Now Open

Rock Center Greenmarket is Now Open


The annual summertime Rock Center Greenmarket opened for business on Wednesday.  It’s located on Rockefeller Plaza between 50th and 51st and features all sorts of fresh fruit, produce, bread, and cheese.  Plus Blondie and Brownie are reporting that Katchkie Farms (the same farm that is in at the Port Authority Greenmarket on Thursdays) will be at Rock Center every Friday (i.e. today) selling sandwiches and lasagna (?!?)  The Rock Center Greenmarket will run every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 8am to 6pm through September 4th.

Port Authority Greenmarket Opens Today

Today, the CENYC looks to fill a fairly noticeable gap in their Greenmarket Map with the opening of a new farmers market inside the Port Authority (Main Concourse, North Wing.) Starting today at 10:30am, the market will be open every Thursday from 8am to 6pm and according to Blondie and Brownie will feature produce and products from Katchkie Farms, plus sandwiches from Great Performances.

If no amount of veggies could get you to enjoy the Port Authority, there is still the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza Greenmarket (on 47th & 2nd) every Wednesday from 8am to 4pm.  And the annual Rock Center Greenmarket opens on July 29th.
