Holley vegetable grower Tony Piedimonte took this photo last week in New York City when he was at the New York Produce Show and Conference at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Piedimonte spotted this display at the show and was impressed with the creativity. The red stripes in the flag were created with rows of red peppers and the white stripes are cauliflower. The stars in the upper left corner are garlic.

Piedimonte said the show is a chance for farmers and ag organizations to connect with wholesalers, chain stores and other buyers in the New York City area and northeast.
