Strawberries Are Here!

June 12, 2018

There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!

Try it: Asparagus & Strawberry Kale Salad

As you may know, Greenmarkets don’t just provide fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, fish, and baked goods—they also serve as sustainability centers, enabling New Yorkers to join the effort to protect the environment. Most Greenmarkets collect food scraps for composting and textiles for recycling, as well as provide pop-up environmental education opportunities.

It’s your support that helps ensure that New Yorkers have access to fresh food, as well as recycling and educational opportunities at Greenmarkets. Make your donation today to keep Greenmarkets running strong!

And next time you walk through your local Greenmarket, say hello to the market manager working hard to ensure your market is a true resource for the neighborhood.
