To anyone interested in the future
of the Union Square Greenmarket, see the
letter written by Adrian Benepe, then the Borough Commissioner of New York,
on the subject.
Good luck is being 2 blocks from the Union Square Greenmarket. I plan

Just in case you were wondering what happened to the Report, the "bug" that's been going around decided to stop off at my house and I've been having a bout of the "flu", or whatever it is. I expect to be back in business soon, maybe Friday.
Meanwhile, enjoy the Greenmarket and have a glass of Ronnybrook's superb eggnog!!!

BULLETIN FROM GREENMARKET:
Greenmarket is passing along a message from the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition and other organizations advocating for small farms throughout the US. It is highly important that farmers and consumers raise their voice on this critical issue:
The Food Safety Modernization Act -
Stand up for Regional Family Farms Today!
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the most sweeping reform of the nation's food safety laws in more than 70 years, was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011. The FSMA aims to ensure that the American food supply is safe by shifting the focus of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations from responding to contamination to preventing it. Pursuant to the 2011 law, the FDA proposed new rules will have a huge impact on how fresh fruits and vegetables are grown and processed in the United States.
While safe food, from field to fork, is critically important to responsible farmers and concerned eaters, the FDA's proposed rules don't take into account the real differences between food from industrial-scale agriculture and food produced by small and mid-scale, diversified family farmers. Indeed, industrial agriculture, operating anonymously in attenuated food supply chains, rightfully should be subject to rules aimed at preventing future lapses in food safety, like those that have resulted in massive recalls of tainted spinach, eggs, and peanut butter. However, small and mid-scale farms, many of which are engaged in on-farm value added processing and direct marketing, have not been responsible for the widespread incidences of foodborn illness that the FMSA is intended to abate. Currently, these smaller farms are regulated by state and local authorities, and most importantly, they are directly accountable to those who buy and enjoy the food they produce.
Rules written for industrial scale agriculture will burden unfairly the kinds of farmers who sell their products at Greenmarket. The proposed FSMA rules threaten their farms' financial viability and eaters' supply of regionally and sustainably produced fruits and vegetables because they effectively will preclude certain sustainable farming practices and will generate unsupportable compliance costs. As currently written, the FDA rules threaten to:
Put many farms out of business;
Reduce the supply of fresh, local produce;
Lead farmers to destroy wildlife habitat; and
Increase the use of chemical, rather than natural, fertilizers.
Right now, we have a chance to tell the FDA we believe that locally and sustainably produced food is inherently safer food and that the present bias in the rules against small and mid-scale family farmers is unacceptable. We must tell the FDA that the new food safety rules must:
Encourage farmers to use sustainable farming practices, including those already allowed and encouraged by existing federal organic standards and conservation programs;
Ensure that diversified and innovative farms, particularly those pioneering models for increased access to healthy, local foods, continue to grow and thrive without being stifled; and
Provide options that treat family farms fairly, with due process and without creating excessive costs.
The proposed rules are complicated, but it's easy enough to act now.. The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) has come up with a FSMA rules primer and suggested templates you, be you farmer or eater, can use to prepare and send your comments to the FDA. The more of us who act now, the better the likelihood that there will a fairer outcome. You can get started by going to http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/5735/p/salsa/web/common/public/content?content_item_KEY=9861
DON'T DELAY, YOUR COMMENTS MUST BE SUBMITTED (OR POSTMARKED) BY THE FDA DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 15, 2013!

Buzzard Krest is here with new and familiar varieties! Cheerful Cherry has champagne grapes! It's Labor Day weekend, so you better start putting up tomatoes and other vegetables and fruits if you haven't already!
There are plenty of heirloom tomatoes, eggplants, squashes, beans, greens, and other delicious vegetables here today, as well as peaches, nectarines, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, but those grapes are a sign of the season change, and things will start to lessen after this. Some herbs have gone to seed or sprouted flowers. If you scrape corn off, put it in plastic bags, and freeze it, this is probably the day to do it. My freezer is already full of heirloom and other tomatoes.
Buzzard Krest is in the end spot this week, so Fantasy Fruit has moved down towards 16th Street or so. Windfall, Locust Grove, and D'Attolico have beautiful zucchini flowers today. I used them last week stuffed with Consider Bardwell's fresh goat cheese (here on Monday) and D'Attolico's candy-sweet cherry tomatoes, sauteed. Delicious.

It's cold! It's damp! It's windy! But there are still many stands in Union Square's Greenmarket!
Perhaps not for long, though. Several farms have mini-stands and many plan to leave earlyish today. Still, you can buy your Ronnybrook butter, milk, and eggs, your Three Corner Field Farm lamb and yogurt (for one more Wednesday until lambing season takes them out until May), your Hot Bread Kitchen bialys, your Locust Grove cider, and your Tamarack and Roaming Acres pork! Rogowski has baby spinach, root vegetables, and beans, and Miglorelli has Bloody Mary mix and donuts in addition to apples, cider, and frozen summer vegetables.
Pura Vida is here with fish and shellfish and Hudson Valley Duck Farm has ducks and duck products, while Mountain Sweet Berry has little potatoes and potato chips and Windfall has greenhouse greens and root vegetables. Two Guys has lettuces and mushrooms, Madura has mushrooms and spinach, and Bodhitree has lettuces and other greens. See more stands and produce here: http://tinyurl.com/d333wnq

Signs of Spring! Phillips and River Garden have flowering branches, and River Garden has pussy willows!
Other signs are just whispers of greens soon to come and flowering plants at Phillips. The sun is out and everything just looks better, with beautiful poussins and mixed eggs (duck, turkey, chicken) at Violet Hill's stand, and all sorts of small salad greens at D'Attolico, Monks Hood, Shushan, Two Guys, and others.
I'm trying Beth's Farm Kitchen's ketchup this week, after enjoying their hot sauce a few weeks ago. If you can get a jar of their Meyer Lemon Marmalade, I strongly recommend it -- delicious.
I picked up one of Quattro's delicious chickens and some soup meat for what I'm hoping will be the last huge vat of poultry stock of the season. I'll use Norwich Meadows carrots and turnips, Paffenroth's onions and leeks, and some (choke!) non-market celery, chicken parts and a pheasant from Quattro's. Feeling much better now that I've replaced the stock I had to throw out after Sandy. I only wish there were a way to do the same for the gorgeous heirloom tomatoes I had to dump then.
