The city that never sleeps does not wake up early on Saturday morning. I had some time Saturday morning before leaving NYC for my Great Aunt’s 80th birthday party on Long Island. I decided to go to the Union Square Greenmarket.
Once again, I had fun walking around this market. It was plum season and many varieties were available. I bought many and enjoyed trying so many different types. I am sorry that I did not take any photos of plums.
It was summer so no dogs in clothing but I was interested to see a dog with pack bags carrying produce. I happened to take this photo when the owner was trying to prevent her dog from fighting with another dog.

I enjoyed taste testing tea at the Tweefontein Herb Farm stall. It was 2$ a cup or 1$ if you have your own cup. The woman said taste as many as I like and then fill up with the one I wanted.
- Lavender and Applemint
- Sage and Lemon Balm
- Nettle, Anise, and Hyssop
- Ginger and Cayenne with Maple Syrup
I decided on the Lavender and Applemint and loved it so much I later went back to buy another cup. The Ginger and Cayenne stung my throat. I thought about the time when my husband accidentally drank coffee with salt instead of sugar.
