Tonight, after six years of dreaming and procrastinating, a pal and I are waking up long before dawn cracks and heading out to Fulton Market to watch the wholesale action until six or so (we'd like to arrive around 4). Has anyone on the list done this, and can you offer advice as to plans of attack, etiquette (can civilians buy from the wholesalers? I don't want to be a rube.), recommended stops, best points of entry, etc.? I promise a full report when I return (and have some coffee to prop my eyelids open). I'm sort of hoping for some great salmon, good leeks, and whatever other wonders await.
thanks for your speedy replies,
