Manager

Vinita Vongviwat was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. After spending a couple years working and living out of a suitcase as a national union organizer, Vinita landed back home in LA where she spent another three years working as as an environmental justice organizer in East LA. Through this experience she developed an interest in bringing healthy, local, and seasonal foods to urban communities with little access to healthy foods. Following her newly discovered passion, she became a nutrition and cooking instructor at an elementary school in Oakland, CA before moving to New York City to pursue a M.S. in nutrition and public health at Teachers College, Columbia University. As a market manager, she looks forward to connecting New Yorkers with farmers to promote and sustain local and regional agriculture. In addition, she hopes that her weekly cooking demonstrations will inspire others to cook more--using fresh, local, seasonal, and healthy ingredients from Greenmarket. In her free time she enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, salsa dancing, and traveling abroad.
