Health Bucks starting this Saturday at Greenpoint/McCarren Park Greenmarket

by Pamela Boyle on

We have a couple great this going on at market this Saturday! First off, Health Bucks have arrived! Starting July 1 at farmers markets city wide, for every $5 you spend on your EBT card at market, you will receive a $2 coupon to spend at the farmer’s market on fresh fruits and vegetables (and there’s no limit!).

We are continuing the holiday weekend party by grilling some hamburgers from one of our newer farmers, Haywood’s Fresh from Columbia County, NY. We’ll start around 10am so make sure to come by and get a sample of fresh, local burgers!

The market is open from 8am – 3pm every Saturday on Union Ave. between Driggs and North 12th. Textiles and compost until 2pm.

For more info, check out the Greenpoint 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.
