Bay Ridge Green Market is Still Going

Well, our Green Market had its last day just before Thanksgiving. We'll have to wait until JULY (why not earlier??) for the next one here. If you don't want to travel into Park Slope, Bay Ridge has a Green Market that will go on through December 27th. It's Saturdays from 8 AM to 3 PM.
It's located on 3rd Avenue at 95th Street. You can take the 3rd Avenue bus or the R train to the end of the line.

I'm not sure if this Green Market also accepts WIC/EBT, but hopefully they will.

Here's some information about the vendors/farmers from the organizer. It's not guaranteed that all these farms/items will be there, but it's obviously very different and much higher-end than the Sunset Park market.
  • Hector Perez, Alex Farm, Milford, NJ: apples, pears, tomatoes and assorted vegetables
  • Water Bufalo di Vermont, Woodstock, VT: YOGURT, cheeses including the famous buffalo milk mozzarella, salami
  • Bread Alone, Boiceville, NY: Thanksgiving satples like STUFFING mix, assorted breads to make your own, PIES, and too many varieties of cookies, muffins, scones, and more to name!
  • American Seafood, Long Island: Scallops, swordfish, blue fish, clams, mussels, and MORE fresh caught wild fish from nearby waters
  • Caral Farms, Goshen, NY: A wide assortment of vegetables grown in the vibrant mineral rich 'Black Dirt' of Orange County. Butternut squash, onions, potatoes, HERBS, carrots, and more!
  • New York Beef, Lagrangville, NY: Multiple cuts of GRASS FED beef raised in New York. ****This week rancher John Gagliardi and his sons will be at the market to answer your questions about the grass-fed advantage.****
  • Silvermine Apiary, Norwalk,CT: Andrew Cote is back with his luscious, local, RAW honey and soaps, too! For a decidedly new honey sensation try the whipped honey!
