Stop by the Greenmarket this Saturday at McCarren Park to pick up all your BBQ needs! Last week we saw some exciting new arrivals (strawberries and heirloom tomatoes just to name a few) and this week should be just as great. Stop by the info tent for some BBQ inspired recipes and a cooking demo: fried pickles! If you haven’t tried them before, you are in for a treat.
The market is on Union Ave between Driggs and N. 12th from 8am – 3pm. Drop off compost and textiles until 2pm. For more info, check out visit the GrowNYC Greenmarket website.
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.
