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.

Egon has the fortune of being an operations manager at two of our flagship markets: Union Square and Grand Army Plaza. Having grown up in a vegan household that organized it's own food co-op in East New York, Brooklyn, Egon understands the challenges of living in a food desert. His forward-thinking parents sought ways to overcome the shortcomings of food access. With this, Egon was able to expand his palate and experience the wonders of wholesome food. His Health Science studies at Brooklyn College fused all his passions into a unified whole. Along with a background in the food and wine industry-as well as fitness and wellness, he's an ardent advocate for communities receiving the same head start he was blessed to have with food access and good health.
