NYC Greenmarkets 29 Mar 2009 04:02 pm
Lots of Brooklynites shop at the Borough Hall Greenmarket on Saturdays, but not everyone’s aware that year-round it’s also open on Tuesdays, and from April through December on Thursdays as well. This week, on April 2nd, the Thursday market will reopen for 2009. Stop off on your way to the subway stops around Cadman Plaza and Montague Street, and pick up a treat for your workday. There will be baked goods, and apples, and Fred Wilklow’s delicious just-pressed cider, and much more besides. It’ll sure beat what’s in your office vending machine. To celebrate the opening of the Thursday market there’s likely to be music and cooking demos alongside the fruits, veggies, pies and potted flowers. A notice about the event is pasted in below.
This year will also mark the Borough Hall Greenmarket’s 25th anniversary, and the folks at CENYC (the non-profit organization that runs the city’s Greenmarkets) are planning celebrations beginning early this summer to commemorate.
The Brooklyn Borough Hall Greenmarket is celebrating its 25th year of bringing fresh, local produce to this thriving downtown location. Three days a week this market serves the Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, and Downtown Brooklyn communities with a bounty of fresh picked fruits and vegetables, beautiful plants and flowers, grass-fed meat and dairy products, just caught-fish, amazing eggs, and some of the most gracious farmers. And we’re planning free events all season long like cooking demonstrations, raffles, school tours, and kids & family friendly activities. Come talk to the farmers who grow your food, meet your neighbors, bring a friend, and taste the difference at your neighborhood Greenmarket!The Brooklyn Borough Hall Greenmarket is located in Camden Plaza at Court St and Montague St, and is open from 8am – 6pm every Tuesday and Saturday, year-round, and Thursday from April to December.
And don’t forget that the Sunday market will open in June in Carroll Gardens, at the corner of Carroll & Smith. Enjoy!
