What Time Do You Get to the Farmer's Market?

The early bird gets the ramps.

We tried to get to the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket early on Saturday, but we didn't make it there until 11 a.m.

We asked our friend at the Maxwell's Farms stand what we missed and were amazed to hear that her rhubarb sold out by 8:15 a.m.! And she said her baby arugula didn't last much longer. We were glad that there was still some asparagus, radishes, and spinach left by the time we got there.

We know we have to get to the market by noon if we want to score milk and butter from Ronnybrook Farms, but now we're wondering what else we're missing by sleeping in.

Do any of you wake up bright and early and head to the farmer's market in your pajamas? What are your market must-have that make it worth setting the alarm clock on the weekend?
