Just behind the American Museum of Natural History, on beautiful, tree-lined Columbus Avenue, this year-round market stretches from 78th St. to 81st Streets each Sunday. Shoppers will find grass fed beef, New York’s freshest fish, duck, chicken, ostrich, goat cheese, fresh flowers, eggs, honey, baked goods, apple cider, and a large variety of fruit and vegetables.  Look for foraged greens like ramps in the spring, and an abundance of corn and berries come summer. In the winter a great selection of proteins, preserves, and storage crops keep the market and the neighborhood supplied until the summer's bounty returns.

After years of daydreaming about living in New York City, Lisa Fine finally made the move to Manhattan this past summer. She first jumped into farming in college during a summer on an organic farm in upstate New York. Since then, Lisa has found ways to incorporate farm fresh growing, teaching, and eating into her days, including teaching farm education at Hawthorne Valley Farm, fundraising to create a senior center garden in Vermont, and writing a blog inspired by the local food movement. Lisa is really excited to be part of such an incredible organization, and to be taking on her dream job in New York City.
