LM’s Greenmarkets Offer Freshness From Farm To Plate


By: Caroline De Tino

Fall is a great time to give healthy eating a green light! And what better place to do that than a greenmarket in Lower Manhattan?

These seasonal stands are bursting with healthy options, like locally-sourced fruits, vegetables, juice, eggs — and a whole lot more. Even better, some accept EBT cards! When you spend $5 on your EBT card, you will receive a $2 health buck coupon.

You can find greenmarkets at: Bowling Green; Water Street and Coenties Slip; City Hall Park; the Staten Island Ferry Terminal; Greenwich and Chambers Streets, and Front and Beekman Streets.  For schedules, visit www.grownyc.org and www.fultonstallmarket.com.

Greenmarkets encourage healthy eating and support local agriculture. They also produce a friendly community environment and play host to various seasonal events.

Speaking of events, I have two words for you: cooking demonstrations! All through October, the Bowling Green greenmarket will host Preserve the Harvest from 11 A.M.-12:30 P.M. There is still some time to come on down and learn how to transform your fruits and veggies into flavorful jams and pickles!

So give freshness a try this harvest season and visit one of our neighborhood’s greenmarkets soon!
