Managers

Eduardo was born and raised in the beautiful landscapes of Chilean Patagonia. After having worked in the Chilean Coast Guard for ten years, he moved to New Jersey. He started his experience with Greenmarket last winter as a volunteer, where he assisted one of the Market Managers with outreach at the office and then with the markets around Brooklyn and Queens. In his free time, he maintains a small garden with some seasonal vegetables and he likes trail running, climbing and other outdoor activities. 

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.
