Greenmarket Location suggestion

We are always looking for new locations in New York City with heavy foot traffic, room for trucks, and community support.

We operate Greenmarket in a wide variety of locations in New York City, on wide sidewalks to closed streets, private plazas, parking lots, even inside parks and transportation hubs.

The most desirable sites:

  • are well known,
  • are easily visible and accessible,
  • are in a neighborhood of medium to high density,
  • have significant existing foot traffic,
  • have parking for farmers’ trucks,
  • have a local sponsor (e.g. BID, block association, church, community center, co-op, tenants association) for promotion assistance and on site storage (fliers, a table, a tent, etc), and
  • have sanitary facilities for farmers. 

As a member of the community, you know your neighborhood; we would appreciate your assistance identifying potential locations.

The New York Times recently profiled several Bronx community gardeners as part of an article about immigrant gardeners and their influence on the increasing number of community gardens being built across the City. 

The Bronx gardeners profiled are all from United We Stand Community Garden, a garden GrowNYC rebuilt in 2016.
