Now in its sixth season, the Kensington Youthmarket has become a bustling community destination sited in front of the Brooklyn Public Library on Ft. Hamilton Parkway. This market not only provides a source of farm-fresh produce on one of Kensington's main thoroughfares but also employs young people, providing them with seasonal employment and valuable job experience.
