Publishers Text

Every city dweller has eaten Red Delicious, but how many know a Northern Spy or Black Twig - the Guinness stout of apples? Millions are being drawn to the green oases of 2,700 farmers' markets in cities such as New York, San Francisco, Seattle and many more. And they're hungry for new, easy ways to prepare the wholesome ingredients and rustic specialties they find there. In this book, Joel Patraker - known locally as the voice of the greenmarket - draws on his nearly twenty years with Manhattan's famed Union Square market to concoct a vivid stew of unique recipes, tips and anecdotes from farmers, shoppers, chefs and celebrities.

Lush color photographs and lively text evoke the country charm of produce brought fresh to the city. The 100 recipes are divided by each season and its produce, with lists of other items available, and charts - to help you pick apples by history, appearance and taste or peppers by their degree of heat. In an age when people are clamoring for the freshest ingredients, this book goes straight to the source.
