Greenmarkets in Lower Manhattan: Hours, Items, All You Need to Know
With spring warming up the streets and inspiring the trees to bloom, Lower Manhattan’s greenmarkets have reopened. From fresh vegetables to blooming herbs, these local markets provide some much-needed greenery amid the winds, rain and humidity.
And in keeping with our green theme, there are no plastic bags here. Please bring your own reusable totes.
