Manhattan Fruit Exchange



Originally uploaded by lools.

Chelsea market is home to Manhattan Fruit Exchange, a wholesale fruit and vegetable market that sells a dazzling array of produce at decent prices.

Walking through this indoor market last weekend, I was totally blown away by the sheer variety of fresh produce. From a dozen types of hot peppers to almost every kind of leafy green that grows on earth, this market is a total delight for those of us who must get our daily servings of fruits and vegetables. I was so taken up by everything on sale that I actually didn't buy anything. It's true how they say that too much choice is paralysing!

Before I head back to Manhattan Fruit Exchange, I'm going to consult Alice Waters' Chez Pannise Vegetables and Chez Pannise Fruit cookbooks.

lulu,you seem to be discovering some new place almost every day.and you do have a fascination for fresh fruits and vegetables.eating fruits and vegetables is the most sensible thing to do.when we cook the vegetables and add spices for taste we lose almost all the nutrients.the alternative is to eat them semi-cooked if eating them raw is not possible.then you can gainfully absorb all the vitamins.and to get the freshest and best fruits and vegetables all under one roof is great.
