Item Description

The winner of this item gets a tour of the GREENPOINT / MCCARREN PARK GREENMARKET and a complimentary bag of market produce.

Get out of the city and visit this much-loved Saturday market, which bridges the burgeoning Williamsburg hipster and long-time Greenpoint Polish communities, who come to shop, mingle with neighbors, and enjoy the park setting along with picnickers, dog-walkers and joggers. Open since 1997, this market has adapted to the changing face of the neighborhood while still staying true to its longtime customers. Even rain won’t keep the loyal shoppers from coming out to support their favorite farmers. People line up 10 deep at Ronnybrook Dairy to pick-up fresh milk and yogurt. Arcadian Pasture’s bounty of grass-fed beef, pork, chicken and rabbit is cut and packaged especially for the customer. Organic vegetables from Garden of Eve and Suka-Di Farm’s luscious peaches along with jam, fish, baked goods and juices round out the offerings. This year the market was relocated to a street closure on Union Ave between the McCarren Park track and the well used dog-run and compost site. Also new this year is the ability to use EBT/Food Stamps cards at the market.

Special Instructions

The market is on Saturdays from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm so the tour would occur during market hours, preferably in the morning or early afternoon.  The market is year-round so the tour can occur any Saturday.
