Adventures at the Green Market & Avocado Palm Salad

Going to the farmers market is one of my favorite things to do. Even if I'm just looking around. Taking in all the lush and colorful fruits and veggies leaves me so inspired! This past week here in NYC they had a special night market, where the vendors stayed open later. Here are some shots from this week.
