This much-loved Saturday market, bridges the burgeoning Williamsburg community and long-time Greenpoint Polish communities who come to shop, mingle with neighbors, and enjoy McCarren Park. Open since 1997, this market has adapted to the changing face of the neighborhood while staying true to its loyal customers. People line up ten deep to purchase bottles of fresh milk and yogurt; an array of meat including grass-fed beef, pork, chicken and rabbit draws its own crowd. Seasonal fruit and vegetables are piled high, and honey, preserves, baked goods, eggs, and juice keep the crowds pleased year-round.
Every Saturday Come listen to music by local artists, learn facts about featured market produce, take home market recipes, watch cooking demonstrations by local chefs and the market manager, and participate in family friendly activities!

A native New Yorker, Pam Boyle spent most of her college and post-college years pursuing a career in translation. The Spanish language, plus a growing interest to learn more about farming, led her to a family-run farm in the mountains of Costa Rica where she worked and learned the basics of maintaing a small-scale sustainable farm. Once back in Brooklyn, she was eager to learn more about the local farming communities in the tri-state area and to try out some of the farming techniques in her rooftop vegetable garden. She is very excited to be working with Greenmarkets, spending her Saturdays with the farmers and helping the community gain access to fresh, local food.
