Manager

Michael first came in to contact with GrowNYC as a City Harvest food rescue volunteer at the Union Square Greenmarket. There, he became aware of GrowNYC’s full impact of bringing fresh and healthy locally grown produce throughout New York City. He now proudly works in three markets in Queens - Elmhurst, Forest Hills, and Socrates Sculpture Park. While at the Greenmarkets, he wants to pet and cuddle every cute dog that comes across him. Michael aspires to become a successful filmmaker and writer someday and use his wealth to finance causes and organizations he cares about, which would certainly include GrowNYC. 

Inclement weather in the city or in the greater region does affect markets;  markets may close early, or snow-bound farmers may not be able to make it into the city.
