Weekend Market Picks October 15 & 16, 2016: It’s Time To Get Your Pumpkin

Pumpkins and Squashes and Gourds - Oh My!

Pumpkins and Squashes and Gourds – Oh My!

It is another incredible weekend for market events all over the city! First of all, get a pumpkin. You can find pumpkins, gourds, and squashes of all shapes and sizes in any farmers market near you. If you don’t want to carve one, bake one up into a pie or some delicious soup.

CONGRATULATIONS to these businesses that I first fell in love with in the markets!

  1. To Fany Gerson, La Newyorkina herself, on the opening of her new and amazing brick and mortar shop for Mexican ice creams and other sweet treats in the Village!

  2. To Rhonda Kave on the 3rd Anniversary of her wonderful, wonderful chocolate shop on the Lower East Side, Roni-Sue Chocolates!
