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.
