Halloween & Candy Apples

On Saturday, Market shoppers at Union Square indulged their sweet tooths on candy apples donated from Terhune Orchards, Locust Grove, and Migliorelli Farms and candied by Deb Gavito, owner of Body and Soul Bakery.

Thanks to our wonderful Greenmarket volunteers, who were painting faces and distributing apples all day.

Pumpkin Carving at Union Square

Marc Evan and Chris Soria from Maniac Pumpkin Carvers came out to the Union Square Greenmarket on Saturday and carved two 150-pound pumpkins. Amazing!

These locally-grown ghoulish gourds will be on display at the market all week so stop by and see them. Sugar pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, and decorative squash are available at most Greenmarkets from now until Thanksgiving.

Taste of Greenmarket 2010: A success!

Our 3rd Annual Taste of Greenmarket took place on October 6th at The Altman Building and was a huge hit.

Over 600 people joined GrowNYC and 30 of the city’s best chefs and mixologists, who were serving Greenmarket-inspired dishes and cocktails. The event benefited Greenmarket’s Youth Education program.

Thanks to all our sponsors and everyone who attended. See you next year!

Learn It, Grow It, Eat It students in the garden and at market

We started our Learn It, Grow It, Eat It (LGE) program in 2005 as a collaboration between our community garden and environmental education programs. LGE students, from four high schools in the Bronx and one in Manhattan, take part in a three-part program: growing food in local community gardens; receiving nutrition education, which they then use to perform health-related outreach activities in their schools and neighborhoods; and operating a Youthmarket community farm stand where they sell the food they grow. Today was the second to last day at their Youthmarket, but the market was still full of produce from their garden. The last market day of the season is next Wednesday, October 27th, at Boston Road and 169th St from 10 AM to 2:30 PM. Take a look at some photos from their garden at Wishing Well Community Garden and from their Youthmarket.

Muppets take the market!

The Union Square Greenmarket had a different kind of green visitor on Tuesday: Sesame Street’s Rosita la Monstrua de las Cuevas, the first bilingual muppet, dropped by the Norwich Meadows stand to teach kids about healthy eating.
