Down to Earth Farmers Market and Assemblyman Joe Lentol announced last week that the McGolrickPark Farmers Market will return on Sunday, April 7th, to the corner of Nassau Avenue and Russell Street. Vendors including Alex’s Tomato Farm, Brooklyn Cured, Brooklyn Grange, Garden of Eve Farm, Great Road Farm, Grown in Brooklyn (Barry’s Tempeh), Horman’s Best Pickles, J. Glebocki Farm, Orwasher’s Bakery, Pie Lady & Son, and Tiefra Farm are expected to come back for the second year of the market.
Due to the market’s overwhelming success this past summer, Lentol actively advocated for its return and for it to run throughout the year. “The neighborhood clearly wants healthy and fresh alternatives, as was illustrated by the great turnout at the farmers market during the summer,” Lentol said. “I’m glad I was able to bring this market back with the help of Parks Department Commissioner Kevin Jeffrey and Nicole Reed from Down to Earth Markets.”
The Farmers Market will run every Sunday, from 11 AM – 4 PM, through December 29th.
“The Greenpoint community welcomed the first year of the McGolrick Park Farmers Market with a lot of enthusiasm,” said Frankie Rowland, Director, Community Relations and Marketing at Down to
Earth Farmers Markets. “The vendors loved being there, too. We had many requests from vendors and shoppers alike to expand the market dates.”
“It was common sense to have this market year-round. I am so excited to have it back. Not only did I frequent the market myself, but I know countless people from the community are excited to have access to healthy foods,” added Lentol.
