Last week I discovered that the Greenmarket at Rockerfeller Center has different vendors each day it's open (W -F.) Tomorrow I'll be back for the Thursday Tomato guy, who sold me the best tomato I've had in a long, long time and for less than the produce stands at either end of the row.
Today, however, I found that an apple called "Ginger Gold" had appeared at most of the stands. This apple looks kind of like a greenish Golden Delicious. I make a point of walking through all the stalls (it's a small greenmarket!) before I buy anything to view all the goods and check the prices and quality. One of the stands had samples of the Ginger Gold and I was blown away. It is crisp, juicy and sweet-tart with a thin skin and a firm, dense flesh.
And it's pretty:
I bought three - and ate one immediately. I also picked up a bunch of baby beets, three kirby cucumbers, a red, a white and a yellow onion, scallions and a pint of blueberries. I loves me some summer produce!
