Rockefeller Center Farmer’s Market- Shiro ume Plums, Japanese turnips, and more!

It was a pleasant surprise to find out that the NYC Greenmarket is doing a farmer’s market right near my office.  Although it isn’t as big as the other farmer’s market (like union square) it is really convenient if you are in the midtown area and want to pick up some fresh veggies, plants, honey, or even pickles!

The most interesting item that I found was the Shiro Ume plums! I haven’t seen these yet in New York so I was really excited to find them.  Although Shiro ume means white plums, they are actually yellow.  The ones that I bought at the market were delicious!  I ate them just like that but they are also great for making jam!

I also bought some “Japanese Turnips” or Kabu (in Japanese).  I really love these turnips. They are delicious when boiled or steamed or even pickled in shio-koji!  You can even slice them thinly (I soak them in lemon first) and then throw them over a salad.

The farmer’s market will only be at Rockefeller for a short amount of time (until Friday) so check it out if you are in the area!!
