Located in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city, the recently expanded Jackson Heights Greenmarket is the largest and busiest Greenmarket in Queens. Wrapping around the edge of Travers Park, this bustling Sunday market draws a large crowd of families, long-time residents and young couples who come out to shop, enjoy the lively scene, and meet and greet their neighbors. The Friends of Travers Park designated 78th a "playstreet" where they host family-friendly events each Sunday adjacent to the market. Reflecting the culinary diversity of the neighborhood, the Jackson Heights market offers a broad selection of vegetables, fruit, eggs, fish, honey, chicken and specialty Mexican produce.

Manager

Laura was born and raised in New York, and always felt torn between her love of farming and nature and wanting to be in her hometown, close to family and friends.  Working for Greenmarket as a second-year manager and outreach coordinator has given her the opportunity to be around farmers, spend her days outdoors and help connect people to the process of where their food comes from.  Prior to coming to Greenmarket, Laura worked with gender issues in the non-profit sector, and holds an M.A. in International Development.  Laura is a hobby beekeeper, gardener, and avid traveler.  She has farmed in England, Japan and locally in Connecticut.  She hopes to one day have her own farm. But in the meantime, she’s enjoying spending her days at market, seeing the seasons change through fresh, local food.
