How to Shop at the Farmers' Market (Tour & Cooking Class)

What to expect
  • Walk through the farm stalls of New York City's Union Square Greenmarket
  • Discover and select delicious and seasonal ingredients
  • Learn how to cook with the ingredients you've selected
If you have ever felt overwhelmed at the farmers' market by all the choices and unfamiliar produce and products, this is the class for you. Let Home Cooking NY guide you through the farm stalls of NYC's Union Square Greenmarket, and help demystify what is available. Learn what is most important to fill your shopping bags with this season and why (one secret: fresh eggs... vastly superior to the supermarket variety). With only a loose menu in mind, you’ll select the ingredients that you are unfamiliar with, but want to learn how to cook.

A sample menu may include:
  • Locally-Caught Fish with A Seasonal Vegetable Relish (if you don't eat fish, let us know and we can substitute another protein)
  • A Green Vegetable Side Dish
  • Fall Fruit Crisp with Creme Fraiche
Note: The meeting location will be just outside the Starbucks on the corner of Union Square West and W 17th St.
