Open year-round on Thursdays and Sundays, this market is located on Broadway along the west side of the Columbia campus from 114th street to 116th street and is one block from St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital.  It serves a diverse population including university students, faculty and staff, St Luke’'s Hospital staff, visitors and patients as well as Upper West Side residents. While several of the farmers attend on both Thursday and Sunday, each day has its own distinct character. Thursday’s market thrives on the bustle of the work and school day schedule, while Sundays are more laid back and neighbors come out to do serious shopping.  Shoppers will find milk and yogurt, fruit, cider, baked goods, preserved fruits and vegetables, eggs, cheese, smoked meats, pickled vegetables, maple syrup, honey, fish, and focaccia topped with locally sourced fruit, vegetables, herbs and cheeses, a lunch time favorite.

Manager

Andrei was born and raised in Westchester County, NY. Throughout high school and college, Andrei spent his summers working at a family-owned plant nursery, where he began an interest in gardening and sustainable agricultural practices. Andrei connected this interest with his passion for gastronomy when he traveled to Peru in 2010 and studied the cultural resurgence of heritage crop varieties featured in haute Peruvian cuisine. In 2013, Andrei began working for two farmers at the Union Square and Grand Army Plaza Greenmarkets. Andrei is committed to supporting local farmers and providing healthy eating options to all New Yorkers, and is always willing to swap recipes. 

 

 

 

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.
