At the Greenmarket–Berries Galore


Berry season is in full swing at the Greenmarket right now. Practically every farmer’s stand is overflowing with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries, not to mention our favorite berries of all, cherries, which can be found in three varieties: beautiful yellow and blush Raniers, sweet red Bings and the delicate, shiny sour cherries that are best for cooking.

Sour cherries–make them into a simple jam and serve with duck, or sugar them up in a pie.

Bing cherries, best for munching out of hand.
