If you’re hoping to cook up a special meal for your special Valentine, stop by our local markets to get some inspiration and ingredients this weekend.
At the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket on Saturday, February 8, consider a duck dish — it can be elegant, but it’s not as tricky to cook as you might think. The folks at Hudson Valley Duck Farm have some recipe ideas on their site, and you can ask them for tips in person. And get excited for love by getting excited for spring with a salad — we’ve seen some greenhouse leafy mixes at the market.
Then at the Park Slope Farmers Market on Sunday, February 9, grab a unique treat for your sweetheart from Saratoga Crackers, who will have a special cracker for Valentine’s Day made with organic raspberries and homemade white chocolate.
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.
