Farmer's Market Saturday

I had a great interview with Captain Rick from the Pura Vida Fisheries in Hampton Bays, NY. He told me all about his operation, and how he even ships fresh fish to Spain and Japan! He also sells at the Union Square Greenmarket, 97th st, and 2 other markets in Brooklyn.

He has 6 boats producing 2 millions pounds a year! Today he had dry scallops, diver clams, porgies, squid, yellowtail flounder, winter flounder, hake, bluefisk, grey sole, and swordfish (a "marker" today, which is a fish that's larger than 100 pounds!)

Business was also hopping at the other stands today, with some rhubarb still left, and the first appearance of "rainbow" chard, Swiss Chard with multicolored stalks.
