The Cortelyou Greenmarket has been getting bigger and better every year; this season will be the longest yet.

East New York Farmers Market celebrates 10 years!

East New York Farms! is a community-based program that brings together neighborhood gardeners, local entrepreneurs, youth leaders, and regional farmers to create a vibrant public market in East New York, Brooklyn.

Last Sunday was the season opener for the Cortelyou Road Greenmarket, and it was a very festive occasion! Kids and parents crowded the playground, a klezmer band played, and the market manager cooked up apple-rutabaga compote while conducting a color-coded survey about what additional products people would like to see at the market. It already looks like there will be a greater variety of vendors than in past years, and starting this weekend Brooklyn Compost Project will conduct worm composting demonstrations.
