Union Market - Peak-Season Local Summer Produce
In-season produce is one of our favorite things about summertime, and we’re excited to be getting lots of new, local fruit and vegetables delivered as the season continues to ramp up.

This weekend will mark the very first big, juicy Jersey tomatoes on our shelves and the first sweet corn from upstate New York, along with delicious Early Magic plums and fresh apricots from the Finger Lakes, as well as adorable miniature Fairy Tale eggplants.

Juneteenth: Celebrate Freedom

Union Market - Juneteenth text graphic - Celebrate Freedom
This Friday is Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating freedom and marking the emancipation of slaves after the end of the Civil War. In light of the killings of Rayshard Brooks, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery, among many others, the significance of Juneteenth resonates more than ever.

 Union Market stands in solidarity with the Black community, and we know that like us, many of you will be commemorating Juneteenth this weekend too—whether through vigils, protests, memorials, celebratory picnics and cookouts, or all of the above. READ MORE

Spring Highlights & Memorial Day Specials

Union Market - Ramps Quiche from Prepared Food Department

Here at Union Market, we’re making an effort to be grateful for all of the things we can celebrate right now, even amidst a global pandemic. Not only is it peak season for ramps (a culinary highlight of spring!), but with Memorial Day coming up, this weekend will mark the unofficial beginning of summer and we can start to look forward to more sunshine and warmer weather.

Chef Sandro Romano has created a delicious new quiche for Union Market to showcase the garlicky goodness of ramps. This limited-time-only quiche also contains sweet peas, spinach, parmesan, and mint and it makes a lovely centerpiece for brunch or the ideal contribution to any Memorial Day picnic. You can find it at our Prepared Food counter right now—but hurry, because ramps season is notoriously brief and you don’t want to miss it!

Union Market - Downloadable Shopping List

As we continue to attempt to “flatten the curve,” leaving the house to get groceries is an essential trip many New Yorkers still have to make on a regular basis. With that in mind, a simple and effective way to maximize your trips to the grocery store and be a safer shopper is to use a list.

Having a list will ensure you’re as organized as possible and will help cut down on extra trips out for groceries. It also prevents you from spending extra time inside the store trying to figure out (or remember) what to buy. That’s why we’ve created a blank grocery shopping list to help make your trips to the store quicker, more efficient, and less stressful. This PDF document can be filled out by hand or digitally, and it’s also printable so you can even take a paper copy with you to the store.
