Lutheran Hosts a New Green Market on Thursdays

Excellent! If you stop by 55th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues (right outside Lutheran Medical Center) on any Thursday through Thanksgiving, you'll get a chance to buy bread, fruit, veggies, and other goodies from local farmers.

Of course, since it's co-hosted by LMC, there will be health screenings and information available as well. All the usual methods of payment are accepted (WIC, Cash, EBT, and Health Bucks). See the Brooklyn Eagle article for more details.

That's great news...for people who don't have to work during the day. :( Ah well.

BViB I respectfully ask that you fact check this post. This appears to me to be a farmer's market, not a Green Market. Green Markets are run by the Council on the Environment of New York City.

Anonymous, no need to be so formal.

It is, indeed, a farmer's market. Since it's described in the article as a "weekly farmer's greenmarket," I chose to use Green Market. It stems mainly from my observation that it's not always farmers at the markets, my grammatical aggravation that it's usually not just one farmer (farmer's) at the market, and just preference for Green Market as a phrase.

Love the close reading!
