Have You Been To Harlem’s Farmers Market?

By admin | August 17, 2011

The best way to get the most out of your cooking is with the best and freshest ingredients. And the easiest way to get those ingredients is by shopping at your local farmers’ market. Up here in Harlem, there are a few throughout the year, including the weekly Market every Saturday in Marcus Garvey Park.

Co-run by The Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association and Maritza Owens at Harvest Foods, the Farmers Market in Harlem aims to bring local, fresh, affordable, and healthy food options to the neighborhoods residents. Additionally, the Market is a great way to bring people together to encourage cultural activities and can provide part-time employment and small-business opportunities for local residents and youth.

So come and support your local farmers at the Harlem Farmers Market that is currently operating every Saturday from now until the end of November from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Marcus Garvey Park North at 124th Street and Fifth Avenue. It is however, also available on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. on the corner of 125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard. Here are a few pictures from yesterday’s Harlem Farmers Market.
