We love to spread the word about the city’s Greenmakerts. Today, the Greenmarkets are helping us spread our love with these perfect farmers market inspired valentines.
From bedroom picnics to East Village splurges, our editors share their Valentine’s Day rituals and recommendations.
And pair it with red sangria.
Stay home and make these, or visit the respective bars and let the experts do it.

Come February, we at Edible get bombarded with Valentine’s Day dinner ideas, most of which are so forgettable we don’t even bother sharing. But this year Kriemhild Dairy (who’s grassfed butter we wrote about in Edible Brooklyn last year) had an idea that we loved.
Want to make your Valentine a romantic farm-to-table meal but don’t know your romaine from your rutabaga? Let chef Marc Murphy make the meal for you, if the price is right. Until February 9th you can bid on a Valentine’s Day dinner prepared for you by the chef of Benchmarc restaurants. Murphy is a member of City Harvest’s Board of Directors and their Food Council, and is offering himself up for auction online to raise money on their behalf. You tell him what to cook and he’ll show up with the groceries.
Although it feels like spring is beginning, it is indeed still technically February, that means Valentine’s Day. Below are a few Edible-approved ways to woo this year. If you’re looking to plan your social calendar beyond the 14th, be sure to stay tuned to our Events Calendar to fill your dates. And if you got an event to add–from CSA meet-ups to farm schools to secret suppers–let us know.
