Our Farm to Neighborhood program connects and highlights businesses on Myrtle Avenue, and beyond, that offer regional, fresh products. Since 2011 we have had the pleasure of working with 36 Regional farmers/producers and 25 local businesses!
As we welcome in September, the beginning of peak season for NYS, we will share the bounty with you through regular updates on what Farm to Neighborhood businesses are featuring. Check back regularly! And, be sure to visit our local Fort Greene Park Greenmarket every Saturday 8AM-4PM at DeKalb Avenue & Washington Park. Use this handy Harvest Calendar provided by GrowNYC to plan ahead!
