Bensonhurst Greenmarket

Sun, Jun 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Bensonhurst Greenmarket Opens for the Season Sunday, June 3

GrowNYC’s Bensonhurst Greenmarket will open for the season starting Sunday, June 3. Located at 18th Avenue between 81st & 82nd Streets, the market will welcome another great lineup of farmers with orchard fruit, fresh vegetables, and honey.

The Bensonhurst Greenmarket will also host free community activities, as well as nutrition education and cooking demonstrations conducted by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Stellar Markets program starting in July.

GrowNYC’s Greenmarkets work to preserve local farmland, while ensuring that New Yorkers across all five boroughs have access to fresh, healthy food grown right here in our region. A central component of Greenmarket’s mission and operations is product integrity: everything sold at market is 100% farmer grown, produced, caught, or foraged. In addition to operating farmers markets, Greenmarket is working to improve the health of all New Yorkers with a suite of food access strategies aimed at getting the healthiest, freshest food into the hands that need it most.

Alex Farm Apiary Honey from Orange County, New York
