A full range of products including fruits, vegetables, baked goods, cheese, locally caught fish, chicken, goat meat and grass fed beef fill regular shoppers' bags week after week. Active community partners The Upper Greenside and St Stephen's Church contribute environmental and recycling information and activities, volunteers, and promotional support to help Greenmarket create a thriving market in this neighborhood.
Shop local at the Greenmarket to keep NYC and its bioregion green. By shopping here, you will also be eating seasonally and reducing the impacts of transporting produce to your table. You will be supporting small family farmers as you experience the season's change and enjoy the scent of herbs and locally-grown flowers, too! Greenmarkets provide farmers in the region with a chance to sell their produce directly to you, so it's fresher and more vitamin-rich. Every item has a clearly marked price (and there are end-of-the-day bargains, too). Produce that is organically grown or bio-dynamically raised is noted. Each Greenmarket is a great place to meet the people who grow your food – they are wonderful community gathering points, too. Check the manager's table for information. Some locations accept drop offs of recyclable textiles or food scraps for composting. Others have cooking demonstrations, tastings, and other events. A few even sell produce grown inside NYC in a city farm, a new trend with many eco-benefits for the community!
