Greenmarket 2018 Photo Contest

Farmers Markets are very photogenic.

To properly celebrate National Farmers Market Week this year, we invited photographers (professional, amateur, or student) to visit markets, snap some photos, and send us the images that best celebrate GrowNYC Greenmarkets and Youthmarkets. 

Our team of judges chose the top 25 entries for a roving photography show at various markets throughout the city during the month of October, and one grand prize-winning photograph won dinner for two at Loring Place

Rye Day 10/19 at the Union Square Greenmarket

October 19, 2018
Posted in Greenmarket

GrowNYC is proud to participate in the second annual Rye Week, a celebration of rye as an agricultural product in New York State, which will take place from October 15 – 21.

October 19th will be Rye Day at the Union Square Greenmarket. Johanna Kindvall, author of Smorgasbord: The Art of Swedish Breads and Savory Treats, will be at market signing books and demonstrating how to prepare flat breads with rye flour. Also in attendance will be Strong Rope Brewery, Breuckelen Distilling, Hillrock Estate Distillery, and the Greenmarket Grainstand

The Union Square Greenmarket will also host a number of Empire Rye producers on October 17 and October 20. Three years ago, six prominent New York State distilleries came up with the concept for Empire Rye, a whiskey style for the Empire State. Similar to the way Kentucky has a style of bourbon with strict standards, each Empire Rye distiller must adhere to the same specifications in producing their rye. 

“Not only does New York State’s craft beverage program create jobs, boost local economies, and financially benefit local grain farmers,” says GrowNYC President and CEO Marcel Van Ooyen, “it’s also great for the environment. Small grains are good for the soil when used in rotation with other crops. As the demand for grains like rye increases, so does the health of the soil on New York farms.”
