Great photos, Avi. I love open-air markets, and looking at all those beautiful veg made me want to cook everything. Fresh brussel sprouts - I haven't seen those for years. We grow enough cabbage here in Israel; no reason why we shouldn't have sprouts. But what got me the most was the kale and the collard greens.

I have come back to this post because it is the images are the most similar to the green market in Union Square. Yesterday it was very crowded and I was trying to get my greens and get out of there. People were pushing and shoving and finally I reached a safe little alcove. I reached for the stalk of brussel sprouts and I was stopped by the sound of two over-confident voices talking. They were about 19 or 20 and clearly students from NYU. I turned my head and both we wearing skin tight jeans, tall leather boots, big sweaters and too small jackets. Here is the conversation.
"I just want to buy an onion. It just want to."
"Why?"
"I don't know. I just want to buy it. Look at it."
"I don't get it."
"I don't know. LIke I just want it. I don't know what you do with an onion anyway."
"Ya, neither do I. Maybe you can hang it up."
I paid for my brussel sprouts and went home.
