Union Square Greenmarket

Every week a quarter of a million New Yorkers buy their food at one of more than 50 farmers' markets across the city. A non-profit organization (formerly called Greenmarket, now GrowNYC) has been inviting regional farmers into the city since the 1970s. Meat, fish, and produce are king, but jams, jellies, breads and flowers are just a few of the other homegrown offerings.
