I explored the Union Square Greenmarket at lunch today and I wish I was feeling better, so that I could carry more booty home with me. I suspect, however, that the very small amount that I bought will be too much at the end of the day. I wanted to buy butterfish from the Long Island fishmonger, grass-fed beef from upstate, small whole carrots, beets, fresh mesclun lettuce and herbs, beautiful flowers, bread in several flavors, but I restrain myself rather admirably. This is the part of life in the city that I miss: the amazing variety of available choices.
