This Essex Crossing Farm Stand Sells Rooftop Produce
Essex Crossing has a farm stand to call its own.
The new Essex Crossing Park (really just a privately owned public plaza) hosts the green market twice a week. Neighbors can purchase produce grown on the rooftop “urban farm” at The Essex flagship building just down the block. This green endeavor is helmed by Project Eats, a nonprofit that “sustainably produces” and “equitably distributes” among the community.
Tents and tables are now out every Wednesday and Saturday, from 9am to 4pm. Inaugural run was last week.
However, this arrangement is only temporary. The farm stand will move indoors to the Market Line upon its scheduled opening this fall.
