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, some farmers take leave, while others brave the elements and help keep the neighborhood stocked with local produce throughout the colder months.

Calendar of Events

Community activities, cooking demonstrations and recipe exchanges add to the diverse nature of this market.
