Now in its second season, the Kensington Youthmarket has become a bustling community destination sited in front of the Brooklyn Public Library on Ft. Hamilton Parkway. Run in partnership with Family Cook productions, this market not only provides a source of farm-fresh produce on one of Kensington's main thoroughfares, it features regular cooking demonstrations by Family Cook's Teen Iron Chefs.
The Youthmarket sources all of its food from Greenmarket Co., a wholesale distribution service offered by GrowNYC. Greenmarkt Co. is designed to bring the freshest, highest-quality regionally grown farm products to the New York City community. Youthmarket’s produce is grown by the following farms:
Dagele Brothers Farm—Florida, NY
