Who doesn’t love summer’s bounty? Sometimes I feel guilty for not making it to the Union Square Greenmarket for all the glorious strawberries, peaches, plums and green beans. But now there is an alternative for New Yorkers: Fresh Direct is offering farm-to-table delivery. Think local fruit from Long Island, vegetables from upstate, cheese from local dairies, even local meat and seafood.
Some of the items I plan on buying:
Local littleneck clams
Red Jacket Orchard apricots and cherries
Polak Farm fava beans
Satur Farms radishes and baby fennel
The choices are even more abundant than going to a greenmarket. And what’s great is that from now until the end of the summer, Fresh Direct is offering Busy Hedonist readers 20% off their entire Local Market purchase. At checkout, use the code: SUPPORTLOCAL for 20% off*.
