Union Square Greenmarket (New York, NY)
Farmers from the abundant Hudson River Valley have nourished generations of opportunity-seeking New Yorkers since colonial times. The world-famous Union Square Greenmarket, founded in 1976 with just a few farmers, proudly carries on that tradition in this agricultural mecca with more than 140 vendors.

The origins of certain foods in the United States can be difficult to peg down. The humble Dutch Baby is a perfect example, thanks to its rather deceptive name (due to a phonetic mishap) and its historical roots in both British and German baking techniques. Tangled history and jumbled phonetics aside, the Dutch Baby is actually a simple and humble dish—and the perfect canvas to showcase whatever haul of produce you just brought home from the market. Plus, you can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
