A huge thank you to all of the customers, food writers, and chefs who have reached out in search of information regarding our farmers and the impact that Hurricane Irene has had on their land, businesses, and families. It is times like these that we realize how truly vast and caring the Greenmarket community is.

We won't know for the days and weeks to come exactly how devastating the winds and flooding were to our growers, but we know already that many have been severely impacted. While farmers are assessing the damage and figuring out how to move forward, here are two ways you can help:

1. Donate.

Give what you can, but those of you donating $50 or more and dedicating it to "Hurricane Relief" between now and September 30 will receive a free Greenmarket poster illustrated by artist Claudia Pearson. 100% of all donations will directly support Greenmarket farmers impacted by Hurricane Irene.

Instructions for donating:
Go to our Network for Good donation page
Choose Program Designation: Hurricane Irene Relief


2. Eat locally for all of September.

Join Greenmarket and NOFA-NY as we celebrate the glorious month that is September, when summer tomatoes and eggplant are sharing the table with newly arrived winter squash and cauliflower. Eat an all local meal every day, host a locally-sourced potluck visit a Greenmarket-inspired restaurant, and tell us all about it (submit photos and stories to Liz Carollo at
