Maple Syrup Saturday!

by Pamela Boyle on

Join us this Saturday at Greenpoint/McCarren Park for another great day at the market! One of our newer additions, Walling’s Maple Syrup, will be the inspiration for this week’s cooking demo. Be sure to stop by the info tent for a taste!

We will also be continuing with our Donate a Bag program, which has been hugely successful so far in helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy and helping support our local farmers. The table will be accepting donations from 8am to 1pm. We really appreciate your generosity!

The market is open Saturdays from 8am to 3pm, on Union Ave. between Driggs and N. 12th Street. For more info, visit

A native New Yorker, Pam Boyle spent most of her college and post-college years pursuing a career in translation. The Spanish language, plus a growing interest to learn more about farming, led her to a family-run farm in the mountains of Costa Rica where she worked and learned the basics of maintaing a small-scale sustainable farm. Once back in Brooklyn, she was eager to learn more about the local farming communities in the tri-state area and to try out some of the farming techniques in her rooftop vegetable garden. She is very excited to be working with Greenmarkets, spending her Saturdays at Grand Army Plaza with the farmers and helping the community gain access to fresh, local food.
