Choose 'MYPLATE' at Your Market!
All Season Long
Put on your nutrition goggles and show you're market savvy by filling your grocery bags with MYPLATE: whole grains, fruits/vegetables, dairy and protein. The USDA uses MYPLATE (formerly known as the Food Pyramid) to set the baseline for a well balanced diet. Shoppers that complete a MYPLATE Treasure Hunt form will receive a funny button, bragging rights, and a healthy diet! Just stop by the Market Info tent before and after you've finished shopping to participate.

Hunger Action Month: You Can Help End Hunger By...
Sunday, September 18st
The month of September is recognized by national food banks as Hunger Action Month. Over 1.4 million New Yorkers face food insecurity, meaning that they do not know where and how they will find their next affordable and nutritionally adequate meal to live a healthy and productive life. Greenmarkets serve an integral role in supporting an equitable local food system. To raise awareness, there will be paper plates at the Market Info Tent with the following two prompts: "On an empty stomach I can't ___________; but I can ___________ to end hunger." Please stop by the tent and fill in the blanks with your thoughts so that we can share the community response on social media.
