For me, one of the best things about the Schenectady Greenmarket is that it is a showcase for local farms. Local farmers grow food that thrives in our area, our climate, our seasons. I have to confess a weakness for seasonal cuisine. I look forward to the tomatoes ripe off the vine, apples fresh from the orchard - oh, those apples! Apples that have been stored are a faint shadow of these magnificent fruits that are available now.
This is a display from last week's market, with Indian Corn on the left, ornamental gourds behind that, a green, speckled swan gourd and white pumpkin on the right. These are all considered ornamental by most people here, but they are all edible and unlike apples, store well too.
