DePiero Country Farms (Montvale, NJ)

I'm all for farmers markets, but there really isn't any down here. Next option? Go straight to the farm. DePiero's has been around forever, and before this week I've only been in there once before... and that was years and years ago. They sell vegetables and fruits that they grow, and have a lot for the lunch crowds (it's pretty much in the middle of business parktopia). I got there too late, so I missed out on some made to order fish and chips (next time!). They were breaking down the salad bar, so I quickly grabbed a few things that would be quick to eat before a long study session.

Sliced beets, stuffed grape leaves, tabbouleh, chunky chicken salad, and a tomato salad. Everything except for the grape leaves were really good. The salad bar is $4.99/lb which isn't bad at all. They sell soup as well, and that goes for $3.99/lb.

The best part of this place? Bakery. Doughnuts are big and delicious. I was originally going to go with a chocolate frosted, but I saw a huge tray of jelly filled- heaven! One of these will set you back 80 cents, and oh so worth it.

Actually, it looks like the rain has let up. I think I might head up there right now for a snack!
