I bought a pint for $4.  Depends on the vendor.  Good for 2 desserts. 

 

Next weekend I'll be buying more; am thinking of strawberry gazpacho and quick strawberry jam.

Soba early for tomatoes - were they hothouse? How are they?

Probably hothouse-grown, but it's the same vendor that has that huge stall near the southwestern corner of the park -- today they had just about every kind of summer green imaginable and baby carrots, asparagus and beets.

 

The tomatoes have been awesome.

Yesterday I got a quart for $6, so I was happy.

If any of you get there super early, would you mind taking and posting a couple of long shots of the still-low sun slanting over the produce? That is one of the NYC sights I miss most, really lovely.
