Just behind the American Museum of Natural History, on beautiful, tree-lined Columbus Avenue, this year-round market stretches from 78th St. to 81st Streets each Sunday. Shoppers will find grass fed beef, goat cheese, fresh flowers, eggs, honey, baked goods, apple cider, and a large variety of fruit and vegetables. Look for foraged greens like ramps in the spring, and an abundance of corn and berries come summer. In the winter a great selection of potatoes, preserves, and storage crops keep the market held over until the summer's bounty returns.
Includes cooking demos, seasonal celebrations, and family friendly activities.

Emma recently returned to her hometown New York City after working on a diversified farm in Argentina, where she chased a flock of 12 sheep through the mountains and developed a passion for gooseberries. She has previously organized farmers' markets and volunteered on farms in Connecticut. Excited to be working with Greenmarket to build a thriving local food system, Emma is also an apprentice at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm this season. Her favorite pastimes include pottery, hiking, and attempting to grow vegetables in her shady apartment.
For Ashley Rafalow, what began as the unauthorized sampling of fruit at the supermarket as a toddler has grown into a passion for food, wellness and the greater good. Ashley still loves the experience of food shopping and in particular, how Greenmarkets bring folks together to meet, greet, taste, exchange, nibble and explore. Building upon a background in communications and volunteer experience at Foodlink and Just Food, Ashley is currently pursuing a master's of Public Health Nutrition at Hunter College. She hopes to carry on the momentum of the food movement to achieve large and small social and political change, one bite at a time. Where better to start than at the market?
