So what comes to mind when thinking of subway signs of questionable origin and creepy dolls' heads? Why, fresh produce, of course! Billy's Antiques & Props has added a new vertical to his Bowery mainstay empire: Billy's Farm Stand. The weekend market is in partnership with good friend Dave Pasko of Hlubik Farms in NJ. Open Thursday through Saturday, the market offers "Fresh corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, zucchini, squash, eggplant, blackberries, raspberries, and fresh cut flowers. We do it all at Billy’s Farm stands, Movies, Antiques, and keeping ye olde Bowery alive." Well said, Billy, well said. [Bowery Boogie]
