Farmers Market Loot, Chris Vergara Style


Chris Vergara of Meritage Restaurant in Scarsdale sent in this photo of his loot.


He says:

Isn’t summer great? I just went to my garden to snack on some cherry tomatoes and look at all the loot I wound up with. Purple basil, an eggplant, yellow squash, cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, and the greatest zucchini flowers I’ve ever seen. Now I just have to figure out how to get the bees out of em’. It don’t get fresher than this.

The 411 on Meritage.
