Located outside the entrance of historic Fort Greene Park and surrounded by chestnut trees and centuries-old brownstones, the bustling Fort Greene market serves a diverse community of young, urban professionals and multi-generational Fort Greene families who gather every Saturday, year-round, to mingle and shop for everything from micro greens to affordable staples like potatoes, onions and vegetables grown in Orange County’'s famous black-dirt region. Fresh seafood, cheese, orchard fruit, baked goods, a variety of sustainably raised meat, and dairy products are available as well as wine pressed from Long Island grapes.

Manager

Anthony Reuter is returning to Greenmarket after two years coordinating volunteers at Just Food and learning more about sustainable meat at Marlow & Daughters. You can find him at Brooklyn Borough Hall Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Fort Greene on Saturdays. A long time market manager, Anthony believes farmers markets are important sites of community building, food access, and education. Previous to Greenmarket and Just Food, Anthony worked with a group of non-profits to build an educational rooftop farm in Hell's Kitchen called the Hell's Kitchen Farm Project that provides produce for a food pantry.

This season, she is at Windsor Terrace, Fort Greene, and Water Street greenmarkets. Kathleen has been a resident of Brooklyn for two years and has since enjoyed exploring the local food, beer and wine available in the city. In her free time, she maintains a small herb and flower garden in her neighborhood.
