Our Thanksgiving Menu

Do you love the side dishes at the Thanksgiving table as much (or more!) than the turkey itself? We can’t say we blame you, especially when they include delicious, seasonally inspired dishes like the ones our chef Sandro Romano has created for our Thanksgiving Menu, all made right here in Union Market’s own Park Slope kitchen.

Thanksgiving is almost here, and it’s time to talk Turkey! We know that finding and cooking the perfect Thanksgiving turkey can be a fraught and intimidating affair. So we take all the guesswork out of every part of the process.

Chestnut, Farro & Butternut Squash Soup

Cooler weather means it’s time for soup season once again—one of our favorite times of the year!

The bounty of the fall makes this the perfect time for a hearty and warming soup filled with beautiful autumn produce. This recipe features richly flavored chestnuts and aromatic rosemary, along with tender butternut squash for a sweet, comforting note and farro for a nice toothsome bite.


Autumn Salad with Red Endive and Apples

Summer may be over but that doesn’t mean that it’s the end of your salad days.

Fall has its own share of gorgeous produce—lovely bittersweet lettuces, squashes in fabulous fall colors, and dozens of varieties of fantastic NY State apples just waiting to be turned into pies, tarts, or sliced into salads like this one.


Late Summer Heirloom Tomato & Bread Soup with Basil

As summer starts to fade, there’s no reason to say goodbye to delicious summer produce just yet. This recipe for tomato soup is filled with the intense flavor of sun-ripened tomatoes and a hint of basil.

The secret is to use tomato in two forms: slow-roasted cherry tomatoes and peeled and seeded fresh heirloom tomatoes. The slow-roasted tomatoes give the soup a deep, rich roundness of flavor, while the fresh heirloom tomatoes give it the brightness of the best summer cooking.


Back To School Favorites and Specials

Labor Day weekend is here and school is just around the corner…which means summer is almost over!

You can take heart, though. Union Market has all the supplies you’ll need to carry summer fun into the fall and the school year. In fact, right now we’ve got lots of specials to help you start the school year off right.


Roasted Trout with Cucumber Salad

Fresh rainbow trout, with their fine texture and distinctive flavor, are one of the heroes of the summer kitchen. They can be cooked in no time at all, so you spend less time in front of a hot stove.

The tangy and smoky yogurt sauce in this dish comes together in minutes and is the perfect foil to the refreshing, herbal cucumber salad and crisp, flavorful fish. And it’s so good you’ll want to keep making it all summer long!


3 Simple Recipes for Summer Fruit

Stone fruit, berries, cherries, and melons dominate the summer fruit harvest, some of it coming in from nearby growers from Long Island, New Jersey, and the Finger Lakes region. While all this lovely local fruit is probably most satisfying when eaten out-of-hand, it also makes a delicious addition to cooked dishes, salads, and baked goods.

Summer Bounty: Wild Salmon with Rainbow Carrots

Summer is peak season for wild Alaskan salmon, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Wild salmon is prized for its distinctly rich flavor, firm flesh, and plentiful omega-3 fatty acids. You can find it fresh in our stores from late spring through early fall.

Some of the varieties of wild salmon from the Pacific Northwest that you’ll find at Union Market include king salmon, coho, and sockeye salmon. READ MORE
