Santa Fe - Farmers Market
I love farmers markets and recently visited the justly famous one at the Santa Fe Railyard. Open on Tuesdays and Saturdays, it is full of beautiful, organically grown produce, featuring many many varieties of green and red peppers (some roasted - see below) as well as prepared foods like salsas, chile sauces and powders, cheeses, flowers, herbs, etc. The farmers who sell there are infectiously proud of their products, making the experience not just interesting but actually moving.

You learn about people and culture as well as food when you visit farmers markets and Santa Fe's is a fascinating one.
This blog records my thoughts and experiences relating to cooking, eating, restaurants, food products and ingredients, kitchen equipment and other matters relating to cuisine.
I do not offer reviews of New York restaurants; there are already enough reviewers and points of view. I will, however, discuss things that I discover at restaurants that may be of interest to others. I will offer brief reviews of selected Paris restaurants, as I am often asked for suggestions by people planning trips to that marvelous and beautiful city. In particular, I report from time to time on my ongoing quest for excellent, reasonably-priced restaurants in Paris; fortunately, there are many.
