As Mahón gains popularity in the US, more people are catching on to its appeal. Here at Union Market, we like to describe the flavor of Mahón as a cross between caramel-y Gouda and classic cheddar. In the words of esteemed cheese authority Steven Jenkins, Mahón tastes “the way Gouda wishes it could taste.”
We’ve got lots of local peak-season produce available, from peaches and nectarines to corn, peppers, and tomatoes. Our emphasis on stocking local produce whenever possible means that you get the freshest, most delicious fruits and vegetables that we can find. One prime example is our mixed pints of organic heirloom and cherry tomatoes—currently on special for $1.00 off per pint.
Heirloom refers to varieties of tomatoes whose seeds have traditionally been handed down from generation to generation of farmer and culled from each year’s harvest. Heirlooms are by definition open-pollinated, meaning they’re not hybrid breeds that have been developed specifically to resist disease and preserve shelf life.
Our summery, savory variation on the classic French apple tart uses a store-bought puff pastry crust, so it’s is a cinch to make. The natural sweetness of the tomatoes gets a boost from a hint of caramel, and a lovely savory depth from a dash of vinegar, some ground pepper, and a sprinkling of fresh thyme.
Half-custard and half-cake, clafoutis is a breeze to make, cooks in less than half an hour, and is light enough to justify adding it to your regular baking rotation this summer.
Just look for the bright blue truck! We’re thrilled to be the very first stop when Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream’s Sweet Treats truck hits the streets of New York City for the first time in six years.

To celebrate, Jeni’s pints will be on special for $2.00 off through July 4 in all of our store locations.
In this recipe we’ve paired them with a colorful medley of lettuces which we briefly sauté in hot oil before tossing them all in a zesty, herby vinaigrette that makes a great side dish to serve alongside meat or seafood fresh from the grill.
Of course, there’s classic cookout fare, like BBQ chicken, baby back ribs, and hot dogs and burgers of all kinds. When it comes to burgers, we’re delighted to now offer ready-to-cook turkey burger patties from family-run local favorite DiPaola Turkey Farm, available Fridays through Tuesdays at all five of our store locations. These turkey burgers are unbelievably fresh and juicy—plus they’re easy to throw on the grill and they’re on special $3.00 off per pound this weekend!
