Fresh from the Farmers Market

Today at the Croton Farmers Market I met Miriam Haas who founded Community Markets in 1991 providing farm fresh produce throughout the New York metro area.  Community Markets is comprised of roughly 50 independent local and regional food producers.  One of those farmers, the last in Hyde Park, is Michael Athanas whom I also met today. The beautiful purple and blushing beauty peppers pictured below were grown on the Athanas Farm.  Both are milder and sweeter than the green.
