Gratitude and the Greenmarket: A Photo-essay

by autumn on November 1, 2012

As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, the east coast has had it rough lately. I don’t have much to say about it yet because I’m still feeling pretty sad, but incredibly lucky. I gave in ways that felt meaningful to me and I’d urge you to give or reach out in ways that make sense for you.

Now seems like as good of a time as any to share some photos I took at the Union Square Greenmarket a couple weeks ago. The market has been closed this week and while I wait for it to return, I’m counting the ways I’m grateful for it and the folks who keep it going.

It is heartbreaking to watch the coverage of Sandy on TV, and my heart goes out to all you guys there. Watching New Yorkers walk to work on the news this morning, I turned to my husband and said, “Damn, you know, New Yorkers are so resilient.” Many people were walking hours to work, and I’m not hearing any complaining. Sure, people are being real, stating the facts, but no whining. Just doing what they gotta do to get to work. This post focusing on gratitude is a great example of the New York spirit.

I do miss the Union Square greenmarket! My culinary school was right around the corner, and on breaks I used to wander through the market.

Thank you for this post… I am grateful that Philly was spared so much of Sandy’s wrath, but seeing the damage to my friends in New York and New Jersey has really been heartbreaking. Hope you are well.
