Good Bread: Bobolink Dairy's Bread is as Good as its Cheese

When you serve cheese, you need bread. Over a dozen years ago, that simple imperative led Bobolink Dairy, already renowned for its artisan cheeses, to build a wood-fired oven to bake rustic breads to go with their rustic cheeses. Today, Boblink's oven produces 17 varieties of bread made from largely local and organic grains. Thanks to the bakers' commitment to small batch, naturally leavened doughs, these loaves have a richness of flavor and texture that stands out in the city's crowded bread market. More

It's fall, and this is a great thing. Sure, much is made of summer's bounty at the market, but early fall is just as exciting a time. This week we saw grapes, apples, chestnuts, really long squash, fresh lemongrass, celeriac, mushrooms, and more. Click through the slideshow for a closer look! More

Market Scene: Union Square Greenmarket

Okay, I think we can call it now: it really looks like spring at the Greenmarket. As ramps prepare to make their exit—this could be their last week—asparagus, nettles, fiddleheads, edible flowers, and green garlic are all currently available at the market, among some less seasonal items, like fresh goat meat from Ardith Mae and maple cured kilebasa from Tamarack Hollow. Check out what's at the market! More
