The Union Square Greenmarket Summer Fridays will be partnering with GrowNYC Zero Waste Programs to make this a sustainable event. Volunteers and staff will help the public recycle materials from the event, and they will provide outreach and education about the NYC curbside recycling program. GrowNYC will also be collecting food scraps for compost at the event, diverting even more waste from the landfill!

These events are free and open to the public and hosted in collaboration with Union Square Partnership

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.
