Neighborhood residents and staff from New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center flock to this Washington Heights market for its bounty of fresh, locally grown offerings. Mexican herbs, peppers, and greens, honey, cheese, juice pressed from ripe orchard fruit, produce grown in the rich soil of Orange County's "Black Dirt" region, pastries and fresh bread make this the perfect market for putting together a healthy lunch or stocking up your larder mid-week. Visit the Market Information tent each week for cooking demonstrations, nutritional information, kids' games and health-related events and activities throughout the season.

Manager

Angela Ruggiero-Corliss is thrilled to be back in New York and managing the Fort Washington, Parkchester, and Mt. Sinai Greenmarkets this season. A graduate of Columbia University, she has spent the last few years in western Massachusetts studying yoga, herbalism, and shiatsu bodywork. She believes that nourishing, locally-produced food is the most important medicine there is, since it helps people (re)connect with their bodies, their communities, and the earth. In her spare time she rides her bike around the city, writes, and listens to music.

On Monday, July 11, we launched the “Oh SNAP!” educational campaign with a live mural painting on a Greenmarket, Co. delivery truck. The “Oh SNAP!” campaign was designed to draw attention to the fact that GrowNYC’s network of Greenmarkets accept electronic benefits cards (EBT) and shoppers can use their SNAP benefits to purchase farm-fresh produce from the region’s mid-sized family farmers.
