Set on a hill overlooking New York Harbor and the downtown Manhattan skyline, this market draws a dedicated following of neighborhood shoppers who line up each Saturday to get first dibs on the freshest seasonal fruit, produce, cheese, meat, seafood and baked goods. An array of plants, berries picked just as they have ripened, juice pressed from upstate orchard fruit, heirloom tomatoes and much more will entice you to keep checking back in on the market to see what's new each week, and experience the change of the seasons through the food made available by these regional farmers.
Community activities, cooking demonstrations, and recipes exchanges all add to the diverse nature of this particular market.

A native Staten Islander, Nan's love for the country took her to the Blue Ridge Mts. of Virginia where growing food is a way of life. Although back in NY for many years, her attention focused on local environmental concerns while working as the office manager for design firms.
She shifted interests toward the "environment within" when she graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2011. Now she shops, chops, cooks and blends up nutritious dishes made with local nourishing food and teaches others to do the same. Passionate about teaching children, their parents and all who want to learn, Nan shows how to support their health by eating real food.
Recently she completed the Master Compost certificate program and maintains a small garden in the back yard. She volunteers at the new local Heritage Farm at Snug Harbor. When not playing with food, you?ll find her sewing sock monkeys or knitting plastic yarn.
