I woke up with a craving for fresh doughnuts today. Thankfully, today's a Wednesday and I was able to pick up some fresh cider doughnuts at the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza Greenmarket, which is on the way to work. At just $2 for 3 freshly baked, brown sugar coated doughnuts, it is a great way to start one's morning. I shared the goodness with my co-workers because the doughnuts are quite filling. No commercial doughnuts fluffed up with air here! I don't take enough advantage of this amazing farmer's market, and I resolve to visit it more frequently from now on. There are so many great finds here: heirloom tomatoes, mesclun greens, a variety of apples, peaches, fresh apple cider, apple pies, bread, pastries, fish, cheese, and even fresh milk and ice cream. Best of all, these are all locally grown and produced. Lately, people have been wising up to the fact that buying local is in fact even better than buying organic because it gives you a smaller environmental footprint. The cheaper prices can't hurt either!
