After all the rain we have been having in New York lately, I jumped at the chance to hit the Union Square Green Market with my kids on a sunny Saturday morning. It would be a perfect way to spend a weekend morning: getting to know our local farmers and shopping for local, healthy foods. When we arrived, I gave them each some money and told them that they could pick a sweet treat and one vegetable of their choice. Check out the slideshow below to see what caught their eyes.
