As part of our healthy September I took the family to the Union Square Farmers Market today. Where you can get the freshest produce available in the city (except picking it from your own garden). A wonderful outing for the whole family as the markets are held at Union Square which is a lovely park with a newly renovated playground. There are plenty of bench seats in the shade so very pleasing on this warm end of summer day. I strolled around the markets while Cam played with the girls in the park and on the swings. The market was full of ripe summer fruits and irresistible leafy greens. Upon arriving I went straight to the Deep Mountain stall that sells succulent Maple Sugar. If you have never had maple sugar (crystallized maple syrup), and you are a sweet tooth then this would be the utmost treasure to melt in your mouth. The Children love it, I place the smallest morsel on their tongues and they jump up and down for more! With my grocery bag full of goodies: sunflower sprouts, arugula, baby beets, farmhouse bread, maple sugar candy, heirloom tomatoes, garlic, shallots, flat leaf parsley and blue potatoes. I met back up with my family. Elle devoured the baby heirloom tomatoes, squirting tomato seeds everywhere while doing so. I then insisted we go home, as I was so very inspired (and hungry) from the delectable produce and was keen to make….and eat lunch!
