Hester Street Greenmarket!
Greenmarket was founded in 1976 with a two-fold mission: to promote regional agriculture by providing small family farms the opportunity to sell their locally grown, caught, foraged and baked products directly to consumers, and to ensure that ALL New Yorkers have access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.
I’m so happy that the Hester Street Greenmarket will open on Sunday, June 20th in partnership with the Hester Street Fair.
