Manager

Isabella has the privilege of being the market manager at three Greenmarket locations: Tribeca, Tompkins Square, and Elmhurst. They grew up in rural Maryland and consider themselves a life-long environmentalist, citing their Montessori education as the greatest influence in their life. They recently graduated from the University of Maryland in College Park with a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Science and Policy. Their studies included community garden feasibility, food politics in the nation’s capital, and sustainable agriculture in Urban settings. This, along with their lifelong passion for environmentalism, brought them to NYC as a market manager with GrowNYC. Their background in politics, agriculture, and food systems means that they believe each community throughout NYC deserves access to food that is nourishing to the body and to their communities. 

Each Saturday, the Bronx Night Market brings a global food celebration to Fordham Plaza, and we're joining the party!
