My farmers market is still vibrantly thriving, despite the 17 degree weather we’re having here in New York. As you can see they have apples, carrots, sweet potatoes, lettuce, kale, squash, onions and so much more. I go to the Grand Army Plaza market. It was founded in 1989. It is Greenmarket’s flagship Brooklyn market, and the second largest in the program, behind Union Square.
It’s located at the northwest entrance to beautiful Prospect Park and there’s also a zoo inside the park. Just less than a half a block is the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. There’s a handful of fun family activities to do within less than one block of each of these historical landmark buildings.
This community destination brings together a mix of shoppers from the nearby neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, and beyond. You’ll find runners, dog-walkers, families, singles and foodies all converge to buy from the huge array of farm fresh products, and to participate in the programming and cooking demonstrations that take place every Saturday all year long.
My family loves spending time at the market, museum, and library. I’m conscious about what I feed my family, and the extracurricular activities we take part in. I’m blessed that I have this market in my neighborhood all year round. Fresh is obviously best!
