Bradley Farm – It’s Good to Feel at Home

6a00e55029641d883401348552fa68970c-800wi This is celebrity farmer Ray Bradley of Bradley Farm, one of the vendors at my local farmer’s market, on  the Upper West side, every friday morning. It is my weekly appointment, when  I am in the city and I love it! It’s like  being at home in Roma, where everybody knows you, chats with you and shares recipes. Only that in New York you deal with real stars. Ray, for example, was featured twice in the NYTimes last year and once already this year. Not only he didn’t become arrogant, after all this buzz…he is the dearest man. Today, I didn’t have any money, shopped at his table for 15 dollars. He said, don’t worry at all, you’ll pay me next time. I felt right at home.

    How wild to read about farmer Ray Bradley on gustiBlog! I always look forward to going to the Friday market, and visiting Ray’s stand– his products are simply exquisite! Almost every Friday morning, when I am there, I do feel like I am back in Paris, shopping at one of my favorite markets–Bastille, la Mouffe, Raspail, St. Charles, Jules Joffrin, et al. We, in the Upper West Side, are supremely lucky to have Ray! And that is a major understatement!
