Waning Market

Next Saturday will be the final day of the season for the Union Square Farmer’s Market. After then, I’ll have to go to Davis Square for my winter fruit and vegetable fix. In the meantime, I was presented with a dilemma: do I buy more than I need this week, knowing that the stands are well-stocked, or do I wait until next weekend and deal with the possibility that the produce will be sparse?

I erred on the side of caution and bought extra: granola, eggs, baby yellow potatoes, and both regular and yellow carrots. I also bought a pecan pie, some bagels (it will be up to She Who Must Be Obeyed to keep us stocked up after this), and two ham stakes (there’s a Fergus Henderson recipe I’ll be trying this coming week).

Hibernation mode isn’t that far away.
