Think of this as a public service announcement. For those of you that live between the Battery and 59th street, you can now shop the Union Square Greenmarket and have your goods delivered to your door. I mean, how many times have you decided not to buy something (watermelon, anyone?) simply because you can’t deal with lugging it home? Hello From Earth to Kitchen, a fleet of cute bright green delivery bikes that bring your produce home expediently and (bonus!) without any carbon emissions. Which means that you get to be lazy whilst also supporting farmers and helping to save the earth. How good is that? How jealous am I, whose Manhattan days are long over?

Very jealous. Though I suppose there is something to be said for the exercisee of duking it out on the subway with an overflowing bag of greens. But not much. There is talk of expanding the delivery area– these folks have only been at it for a few weeks– so I won’t give up hope yet. And at least I am spreading the good word to all of you Manhattanites out there. Which has got to count for something.
Look for the bright green bike on the west side of Union Square, someplace around 16th street. Or get in touch with them directly on the phone (215.805.2996) or via their site. And enjoy!
