Fromage en Union Square Farmer's Market

Nothing replaces buying fresh produce directly from farmers. The farmstands at Union Square in Manhattan have all the seasonal produce any New Yorker might crave. Although olives don't grow on the east coast, cheeses are know to be marinated in the oil. Curiously, when I asked one of the farmers about what kind of olive she uses, she explained that virgin olive oil matched up to her palate better than EVOO. She felt the EVOO made the cheese too bitter. I'm curious to know why that is. Either way, cheese packed in olive oil is amazing. All you need is a baguette and maybe a bottle of accompaning wine. Scarf!
