Purim begins tonight and the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket is ready to celebrate. Baker’s Bounty is back with assorted local hamantaschen, so grab the different varieties. What’s your favorite filling? I’m a fan of raspberry. Delicious!
Also available at the Greenmarket today: flowers! Beautiful, beautiful flowers, the signal that spring is coming. Pick some up or just take a whiff.
Even more baked goodies are available tomorrow at the Park Slope Farmers’ Market, where Pie Lady & Son and Red Barn Bakery set up their stands. Tomorrow is a special occasion, though, because the popular day vendor Brooklyn Winery returns. Stock up on your locally made reds and whites!
The GAP Greenmarket runs Saturdays from 8am-4pm at Grand Army Plaza. The Park Slope Farmers Market runs Sundays from 10am-4pm along 4th Street at 5th Ave.
