Eight Farmers Markets Now Open in Lower Manhattan
Lower Manhattan is going green more than ever before—green vegetables, that is. There are now eight farmers markets in the square mile below Chambers Street, including the recently opened Andaz Wall Street Farmers Market—the first run by a hotel in New York City—and the World Financial Center Greenmarket in Battery Park City.
“Now Lower Manhattan’s 55,000 residents, 300,000 workers and 6 million annual visitors can enjoy an abundance of fresh, local products at a variety of fantastic Downtown venues nearly every day of the week,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, President of the Alliance for Downtown New York.
The eight markets are located throughout the district. All feature goods from local producers, including bread, cheese, jam, honey, maple syrup, pasta, milk, meat, fish, pastries, gelato, potted plants and, of course, produce—and it’s all local.
