Farmer's Markets in the City?

Thoughout New York City, farm fresh produce, flowers, meats and more await you!

By

Believe it or not, there are year-round farmer's markets throughout New York City. These open-air markets offer visitors and residents alike to purchase a variety of products directly from suppliers. Greenmarket has run and managed farmer's markets throughout Manhattan and the boroughs since 1976.

There are 28 individual locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island. Of these 28, 10 locations operate year-round. During peak season, over 100,000 customers visit the markets every week.

Approximately 200 farmers participate in these markets and include vegetable (both traditional & organic) farmers; orchard growers; meat, dairy, poultry and fish producers; and producers of baked goods, honey, maple syrup, jam, wine and plants.

There is a market open every day of the week, in one of their many locations. To find the market nearest or most convenient to you consult the market listing and schedule (PDF file requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).

The largest and most well known market is the Union Square Farmer's Market, which operates year-round and is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
