Manager

Jay Ledoux was born and raised in Southern Louisiana and just recently moved to New York after a stint teaching in the West Indies. He started gardening and composting with his dad at age 10, fell in love with hiking soon after that, and it's been hard to get him indoors ever since. Today, he enjoys growing catnip and wheatgrass for his furry friend Duke, finding hikeable spots in New York, playing ultimate frisbee and cooking fresh food into delicious meals. He's very happy to be working with an organization that preserves farmland while ensuring all New Yorkers have access to the most nutritious and delicious food.

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.
