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

Kathleen grew up on the seacoast of New Hampshire and has a degree in sustainable food production from the University of New Hampshire. 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. 

Inclement weather in the city or in the greater region does affect markets;  markets may close early, or snow-bound farmers may not be able to make it into the city.
