Now in its fourth week of this season, GrowNYC  brings its Greenmarket to St. Mark’s Church. The organization has been outfitting the East Village with local fruits, veggies, organic baked goods and  other farm delights since 1981, or before “organic” and “eat local” was a thing. So what’s in store for this year?

This season, our farmers include Bread Alone from Ulster County NY, which brings a variety of breads, pastries, and granolas, some of which are certified organic. We also have Kernan Farms from Cumberland County, NY which offers vegetables and fruit. Also, next month we expect to welcome Mi Ranchito Farm from Monmouth County, NJ which will offer veggies as well as Mexican specialty produce and herbs.

Not only does the market entice with locally sourced foods, but they also offer compost collection, textile recycling, and daily cooking demonstrations using fresh, local ingredients from their market.

Something else you might not know is that EBT/Food Stamps, Debit/Credit are accepted 12 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. As an added bonus, for every $5 spent in EBT, customers receive a $2 Health Buck coupon to purchase additional fruits and vegetables.  Also, WIC and Senior FMNP Coupons are accepted at individual farm stands. Some pretty decent accessibility to fresh eats. 

St. Mark’s Greenmarket is located at 10th Street & 2nd Avenue (in Abe Lebewohl Park), open Tuesdays, 8:00am-6:00pm until November 25.
