While many among us will spend the day goofing off at our desk jobs dreaming of the enormous meal ahead; shopping for the enormous meal ahead; or languishing in LaGuardia to make it in the nick of time to the enormous meal ahead, today is generally one of the busiest days of the year for most markets–be they Green or Whole.
As you wait for those cranberries to caramelize, we’d like to offer some reading materials from posts past at our sister pub, Edible Manhattan. First, a short piece penned last year by our editor-in-chief, the former publicity manager for city Greenmarkets, on the biggest farmer’s market of the year taking place right now in Manhattan at Union Square. And next up, a 2009 story on the similar scenario now taking place at supermarkets across the city. If that’s not appealing, perhaps this little post on what real men used to eat in Thanksgiving pasts is more up your alley.
