    I was really impressed and I’m still crossing my fingers in hope that Yuno’s farm will return…She has, without a doubt, some of the best and freshest produce I’ve ever tasted- from the asparagus, to the strawberries, to the Korean cucumbers, this grower is ON. Her cukes are so OUT OF CONTROL good, I couldn’t bring myself to dress or even season them…Yuno stated that she will probably not return to the market (her usual locale is Peirmont), but I’m not above starting an email campaign to get her back….I think i’m in love.

    As for the rest of the market, I think it’s a winner…I bought homemade tofu, more lettuce than I can consume in a week (3 heads, 3 bucks), tomatoes (greenhouse yes, hydroponic no), and some delightful artisanal tofu. Definitely worth stopping in at on a Sunday.

  2. Jim says:

    There’s something that makes me ill when I see overpriced fruits and vegetables at “farmer’s markets.” Good food doesn’t need to be expensive and spending $15 on raw honey, $5 for a loaf of bread, or $5 for a few strawberries will not make you appreciate or understand food. The European market model is similar to the farmer’s market here in the US, but the food is often cheaper and fresher. We have a long way to go to correct how we understand and consume food here in the United States.

  3. rexa says:

    Um, Jim: have you check the price of NJ/NY land lately?
    Also: what’s overpriced? $1.39 apples (from market), $4/lb. asparagus (picked that morning- as opposed to A&P $3.99), $3/3 heads of leaf lettuce, and $15/ 5 lbs. of honey (last time I checked, Costco’s price was $12). These farmers are breaking even (even at these prices). Sure, we may have a long way to go, but poo-pooing it at the get-go ain’t gonna change anything.
