Best Green Market (2008)

Abingdon Square

Am I the only one who thinks the Union Square green market has declined in the last couple of years? There seem to be more customers and fewer vendors, and a greater proportion of bad baked goods and items like minicomposters that never originated on a farm. I've found much better stuff at the satellite green markets lately, especially the Saturday market at ABINGDON SQUARE, where I recently bought the season's first garlic chives, Jersey tomatoes that you could smell from 10 feet away, and fresh flounder filets trucked in the early morning hours from Montauk.
