Summer is approaching and that means greenmarkets! Greenmarket, the farmers market of GrowNYC will be returning to the New York Botanical Garden on June 17th and will be there every Wednesday until November 25th. Hours are 9 am to 3 pm.
A little info about the market:
For the 14th year, the farmers market continues to bring affordable, locally grown produce and fresh, nutritious baked goods to the Bronx. Heart Smart activities, part of the MetLife Healthy Families Program, made possible through the generous support of MetLife Foundation, will teach visitors how easy it is to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle and improve their cardiovascular health. Visitors can pick up a map that outlines a self-guided, narrated walking tour around the Garden. Participation in each of these activities is free to the public.
With the return of the Greenmarket to The New York Botanical Garden, vendors from the Hudson Valley region and beyond will offer a wide array of seasonal produce. The market provides New Yorkers access to garden-fresh, delicious, and nutritional food produced by New York farmers.
