Founded in 1989, Grand Army Plaza is Greenmarket's flagship Brooklyn market, and the second largest market in the program, behind Union Square. Located at the northwest entrance to beautiful Prospect Park— and just steps from the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. This community destination brings together a mix of shoppers from the nearby neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, and beyond. Runners, dog-walkers, families, singles and foodies all converge to buy from the huge array of farm fresh products, and to participate in the programming and cooking demonstrations that take place every Saturday all year long.

Calendar of Events

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!

Managers

A New Jersey native, Caroline Hiteshew discovered her passion for all things food and farming in the cornfields of Ohio while studying Anthropology at Kenyon College.  The more she learned, the more she realized that food touches everything she values in life: community engagement, proper stewardship of the land, and social justice and equality, to list just a few. After spending a season working on a farm in the Appalachian hills of southern Ohio, living off the grid and breaking bread with her Amish neighbors, Caroline was thrilled to find a job in the big city where she’s still privy to stories of runaway cows and mischievous goats. When not at markets, she enjoys cooking, dancing, reading, writing, and discovering new music.
