Walking past Three Guys from Brooklyn, a produce market and specialty food store in Brooklyn’s Dyker Heights neighborhood, it is nearly impossible to avoid the siren call of fresh produce. There, under a green-and-white awning, rows of wooden carts overflow with beefsteak tomatoes and broccoli crowns, blushing donut peaches, and fat, fragrant melons. Signs handwritten in the bright bubble lettering indigenous to grocery stores boast New York–grown Cortland apples at 99 cents per pound and, if you catch them at just the right time of year, 5 jumbo artichokes for $1.99. Thoughts of dinner spontaneously emerge.
