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. Thursdays 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.

Chris Thompson is a community composter with a background in psychology and neuroscience research. After leaving the sterile laboratory for a more organic scene, he became interested in urban agriculture, soil building, and organics recovery in New York City. This led Chris to complete a Composting Apprenticeship with Earth Matter on Governors Island, where he processes GrowNYC food scraps into black gold with the aid of chickens, goats, worms, and microbes. You can find Chris collecting food scraps at the Columbia University and Fort Greene Greenmarkets. You'll know him by his impressive beard, his penchant for good conversation, and his eagle eye for non-compostable contaminants.
