One of the longest running year-round markets in the Greenmarket program, the 97th Street market has been serving the diverse population of the Upper West Side for over 25 years. Located on a wide cross-town street, the peak of the season finds this market teeming with produce from southern New Jersey, Orange County, NY, and the Hudson Valley available, as well as eggs, grass-fed meat, fish, cheese, and more. In the winter, when some farmers take leave, others step in to help keep the neighborhood stocked with local produce throughout the colder months.
Community activities, cooking demonstrations and recipe exchanges 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, humane animal care, 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 Queens, NY on Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm. Concerns about food access and social justice, especially in her own Queens community, led Arielle to work with Greenmarket as an EBT Coordinator. 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.
