What would you do on a super-cold, snowy day? Set up a stand in the local farmers’ market? That’s what quite a few vendors did today in the Union Square Greenmarket in Manhattan. With the wind blowing, snow falling, and most of the city (except for the schmucks waiting in Times Square…seriously, I have no idea why people think that’s fun…) taking naps, local food purveyors still lined the market.

Sure, it was a bit more sparse than a bright summer’s day. But you could still find everything you need for an amazing meal. Two grass fed beef vendors, sustainable poultry & pork, apples aplenty, root veggies, squash, preserves, wine…

The point is, if these guys and gals can drag their asses into Manhattan & stand in the cold/snow, we can all make a little effort to eat locally. It’s a lot easier than what they’re doing. So let’s do that.

I’m going to have a Ronnybrook Farm yogurt, and a mackintosh apple (75 cents a pound, take that megamart!), and get ready to get hammered. Happy New Year.
