Greenmarket at McCarren Park: Eggplant Extravaganza

by Pamela Boyle on

This Saturday’s Greenmarket will be celebrating eggplants at market. Eggplant comes in all colors, shapes and sizes and the options are endless. We will have some recipes and information at the market tent and market manager Keren will be cooking up her famous baba ganoush recipe–not to be missed!

We will also be continuing our Storytime series with Brooklyn Public Library at 10:30am (weather permitting). Bring your little ones and enjoy the morning with us at the park!

Textile and compost are open from 8am – 2pm and the market is open until 3pm. The farmer’s market takes place in Greenpoint at McCarren Park on Union Ave. between Driggs and North 12th.

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.
