Rites of Spring: Ramps Will Arrive in Union Square on Wednesday
Gastronerds, rejoice! Though yesterday's chill may have suggested otherwise, spring is here, and to offer definitive proof, ramps will arrive at the farmers' market this weeky. Per New York magazine, Rick Bishop's Mountain Sweet Berry Farm will be bringing what is perhaps the most fetishized member of the Alliaceae family to the Union Square Greenmarket on Wednesday. Thanks to the recent warm, wet weather, the crop is supposed to be particularly good this year, so expect even more groans of odorous rapture than usual.
