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.

Anne Vierse spent most of her life in the Midwest before moving to New York City after college. Growing up, she enjoyed learning basic vegetable gardening skills through helping her dad in his backyard garden and resultantly developed a passion for cooking with these simple and fresh ingredients. During her time at college in Indiana, she experienced the political side of farming through her work with a watchdog organization committed to fighting CAFO’s. Upon moving to New York, Anne was pleased to find a local farm presence through GrowNYC. She is excited to work with the farmers and local communities through Greenmarket at Dag Hammarskjold and Grand Army Plaza.
