Valentine No. 62

For the eighth summer, I’ll be spotlighting little aspects of life here that I love. To see the previous Valentines, click the Valentine tag at the end of the post.

The Lani’s Farm stall at the Saturday Tribeca Greenmarket is like a little bit of the Union Square Greenmarket in our own backyard: It has all sorts of pesticide-free produce—and the best eggs—that you can’t find anywhere else, including many plants you’ve probably never heard of, let alone tasted. (And the folks who work there are as nice as can be.) I always get a kick out of the descriptions, which invariably tout some several health-related benefit, even if “aids digestion” gives me pause. These photos are just a small sample of what was available one day last fall.
