Set on a shady, tree-lined avenue near Lou Lodati Park, the Sunnyside Greenmarket is a thriving community center drawing an ethnically diverse mix of young couples, families, and elderly residents from the surrounding neighborhood. On hand are a fantastic selection of vegetables grown in the Black Dirt of Orange County, specialty Mexican produce and herbs, eggs, seasonal fruit, cider, baked goods and fresh-caught fish. Cheese, pickled vegetables, grass fed beef, and wine pressed from locally grown grapes entice shoppers with culinary possibilities.

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 third-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.
