Again, I find that writing comes in bursts.

I can’t find an onion with which I am satisfied. Morton Williams, West Side Market, the market next to that, Fairway Market…all of their onions are bruised and dirty. I miss the smooth pearls of Waitrose. I miss the one or two reliable brands, that is I only have three grocery shops that I can choose from in the city. My other options are local farmers market and small liqueur stores. Having a diverse set of grocery store brands in the city doesn’t translate to lower prices. I don’t know if does me any good, but I just want a clean onion.
