Greenmarket's gateway to the Upper West Side, the Tucker Square Greenmarket, offers locally grown produce just across the street from Lincoln Center. Seasonal vegetables range from fresh staples like corn and greens to Mexican specialties like papalo and epazote. Orchards boast sweet berries, stone fruit, and over 80 varieties of apples.
Knowledgeable growers are at market to explain just how to care for their plants, flowers, and herb pots indoors and out. Impeccable farmstead cheeses, fresh seafood, grass fed beef, duck and duck charcuterie, eggs, artisanal baked goods, and New York's only producer of both sorghum and maple syrup round out the offerings.
Community activities, cooking demonstrations and recipe exchanges will add to the diverse nature of this market.

Born and raised in the suburbs of New York, Arielle Hartman dreamed of greener pastures, bluer skies and, frankly, more goats. While working on a family farm in Hudson, NY, Arielle found a community that was just as passionate as she was about fresh food, community-building and, yes, goats. Talking to these farmers made Arielle realize that the land serves us better when we serve the land better. Since then, Arielle has jumped at any and every opportunity to get down and dirty – literally! She has worked on farms in New Orleans, southern France and Costa Rica, as well as in school and community gardens in Queens and Brooklyn. Arielle is excited to get back to the work she loves with Greenmarket and GrowNYC. She has purchased clogs for this upcoming season and she asks that you not to judge her too harshly.
