A note from Chelsea Whittaker, manager of the McCarren Park Greenmarket:

The Greenpoint Greenmarket will be closed on 12/25 and 1/1. But the market will be back in full swing on 1/8 and will continue to run year-round. Yes, year-round! No need to stock up on your root veggies now. Get them and other market goodies all winter long.

Meanwhile, the market is open for business this Saturday (12/18) and is a perfect place to get holiday gifts. Pick up a festive Christmas cactus from Brandywine Gardens, goat meat from Consider Bardwell (now Animal Welfare Approved!), a bottle of wine from King Ferry Winery, and grain from Cayuga Pure Organics.
