Market Day begins with an icy, cold beer???

Saturday is market day and the fresh options are gorgeous. Before heading out to take pix, I wanted to grab a little liquid refreshment. Looks like beer, right? Bubbly, amber-colored, beautiful frothy head. Well, I think it is an even better brew. This magical liquid is kombucha (go to Wikipedia for more info), and where else but New York would you find it on tap? I love to drink this fermented, sparkling, herbal tea-like elixir when I travel. Very refreshing and a big boost to the immune system. So expensive to buy already bottled, I will share how to make it in a later post. The find of the day (except for the beautiful market below) was a bottomless cup of kombucha on tap for $3. Bottom's up!

Market Day Breakfast Sandwich and a Brew

Cook two farm-fresh eggs any way you'd like them. Top with fresh cheese, salsa, avocado slices and mound onto two pieces of whole grain bread, lightly toasted. Cut in half and eat, along with a nice salad of just-picked greens. Wash down with sparkling swallows of kombucha. Coffee helps finish the morning renaissance.

Check out these beauties...radishes, mushrooms, apples, rhubarb, apples, taters, and of course, more cupcakes!

  1. I love all of these pics of nyc! as new yorkers, we sometimes forget to stop and look around us... so this is a nice reminder to slow down every now and again. Thanks for sharing all of this with us Penny! Miss you already.
