Croton Farmers Market at Peak of Season

There’s no better time of year to experience the real deal —ripe produce picked no more than a few days before its arrival in the market.    Tomatoes –heirloom,  cherry , grape, yellow teardrop and those beautiful striped Tigerella.  Peaches are dead ripe at last.

The day couldn’t have been more beautiful for my weekly trip to the Croton Farmers Market.  Finally a respite from all the heat.  It was an invitation to stroll leisurely and allow a few photos to tell the story themselves.

Ronnybrook Farm offers a variety of both  mild and piquant artisanal cheeses.  I couldn’t resist their Camembert.  You’ll also notice their yogurt, milk, and heavy cream, that’s pasteurized, of course, not ultrapasteurized.  The pasteurized tastes better and whips better.  The flavor has not been cooked out of it.
