pie day

For those of you in this area, today's farmers market in Troy was/is fantastic (but keep in mind that the hours have changed...they're now open from 9-1 instead of 10-2). They've expanded to both the first and second floors in the atrium and everyone was loaded with stuff today. I scored some great finds! Fresh and very pungent onions for onion dip (these are the strongest onions I've ever been able to find), sourdough bread and organic tomatoes for sandwiches, and the perfect blend of apples for a pie I'm planning to make this evening. Stop by and check it out. And be sure to grab a hot cup o' joe from Shaun on the second floor. The poor guy may have been there since 7:30 this mornin', but the coffee is fresh.

AND

For those of you in the Massachusetts area, head on over to Provincetown this month and see the very lovely Matthew's work! His new stuff is amazing, and, well, you know what I think about the older stuff.

Where exactly is the atrium where the Farmer's Market is held?
Sounds great and I might give it a try next weekend.

Hi Ellen!

The atrium is on Third Street in Troy, NY. There's also an entrance on Fourth Street. If you see the signs for CVS on Third, you've found it. It's worth checking out, even though I like it much more in the summertime when it's outside.

Wow, I've been meaning to get over the the market in Troy. The tomatoes and cilantro look so fresh and good!

Kate said...

Oh man, the tomatoes are so amazing. You pay a pretty penny for them, but it's worth it at this time of year.

Kate said...

A small fortune, yes, but it's worth it. And you're welcome to join us anytime.

Bronwyn, I made a deep dish apple pie. I generally suck at making pies, but this one was decent.
