SCOOP: FARMER’S MARKET VENDORS

Sometimes this gig makes me feel like a real journalist. Nicole Reed, our McGolrick Park Farmers Market hero, sent me an email that started out with, “K, you’re our VERY FIRST member of the press to get this info!” (I don’t think people in the press use quite so many exclamation points)
Well, It’s happening! Next weekend, take a stroll to McGolrick Park on Sunday, June 3rd for the very first Farmer’s Market which will be on Russell St. There are pies! If you’re closer to Cooper Park, there will be a Farmers Market there, too. I don’t know about you but I am going to double fist.

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!

    Does that mean the “No Parking Sundays” signs go up on Russell St ? I know the community wants the Farmers Market but did the block want it? Residential street all with 3 or more family houses. Instead of not being able to park your car because of the all the movies filming during the week in the area, let now add every Sunday.

      Agreed. They couldn’t put the greenmarket IN the park?

        From what I understand the park’s department didn’t want the vendors driving trucks in the park, which is a valid concern. That doesn’t mean it won’t migrate into the park, but for now this is what we have and thanks to everyone over on Russell St for being martyrs with the parking situation. I don’t think cars are more important to the community than farm fresh food.

    We want to assure you that there will be no parking restriction on the Russell street. Thanks to Lincoln Restler for connecting us with Tony Argento of Broadway Stages! Now we will have free parking space for our vendors in their parking lot!
    We do care about the community and don’t want to inconvenience anyone.
