This much-loved Saturday market, bridges the burgeoning Williamsburg community and long-time Greenpoint Polish communities who come to shop, mingle with neighbors, and enjoy McCarren Park. Open since 1997, this market has adapted to the changing face of the neighborhood while staying true to its loyal customers. People line up ten deep to purchase bottles of fresh milk and yogurt; an array of meat including grass-fed beef, pork, chicken and rabbit draws its own crowd. Seasonal fruit and vegetables are piled high, and honey, preserves, baked goods, eggs, and juice keep the crowds pleased year-round.
