GrowNYC Grainstand Closing

December 8, 2021
Posted in Greenmarket



For the past 10 years, GrowNYC has worked to build a marketplace for local grains. We've served as an essential value chain coordinator, convener, and market booster behind the resurgence of small grains in the Northeast. 

We are so proud of the work we've done, and the fact that local grains are now widely available in many locations throughout the City, and in many of the breads and baked goods you eat everyday. 

We regret to inform our community that at the end of December we'll be closing the GrowNYC Grainstand and Craft Beverage Pop-Up

GrowNYC always intended the Grainstand as a temporary springboard for the Northeast grains movement (a definitive success!), but maintaining our own retail stand at markets sometimes pushed our operations capabilities to the limit and it is no longer logistically feasible for us to maintain the program. GrowNYC will continue to champion regional grains, within our organization and in partnership with the many stakeholders we’ve developed over the years. We are working with these partners to identify additional retail opportunities for local grains.

Below you will find a list of all the businesses where you can find your favorite regional grains and beans, both at NYC retail locations and online.

Beginning in the new year, GrowNYC's work with local grains will be exclusive to our wholesale division. For inquiries about wholesale orders please contact grains@grownyc.org 

Without you, the success of this endeavor to make regional grains available, so important to healthy systems, both human and environmental, would never have been possible. Thank you!

Adams Transition Announces Members, Committees

New York, NY -- Mayor-elect Eric Adams’s transition organization announced its committees and members today, unveiling a diverse, talented group of hundreds of experts, advocates and leaders committed to working together to improve New York City and prepare the Adams Administration to deliver for New Yorkers on Day 1.

Many of the transition committees have been working and collaborating over the last month since Adams was elected to conduct City agency reviews, identify and interview candidates for key appointments, and develop policy priorities. The full list of transition committees and members can be found here on the Adams transition Web site. New members are still being added as work continues.

“This unprecedented collection of great minds and hard-working New Yorkers will prepare my administration for success because they represent the many backgrounds and views of our great city, and they are committed to working together toward its bright future,” Mayor-elect Adams said. “Each committee has been tasked with a specific set of goals and responsibilities to ensure we are ready to lead on Day 1. If we are going to tackle the many challenges in front of us as a city, the advocacy, nonprofit and business worlds must all be at the same table, working in collaboration--and that is exactly what this transition is doing. And the transition of this city to a safer, healthier, more prosperous New York will continue after January 1st—so I hope to continue to lean on this group of experts and advocates after I have taken office.”

The Adams transition is led by United Way of New York City CEO and President Sheena Wright and nine co-chairs who represent the breadth of diversity and talent in New York City, including top leaders from the worlds of government, labor, business and advocacy. Katie Moore is executive director of the transition. Meaghan Brown is chief operating officer.
