Tomorrow: 2nd Annual Greenpoint/McCarren Park Borscht Cook-offby on
This Saturday at Greenpoint/McCarren Park, we are so excited to host the Second Annual Borscht Cook-Off! Some of you may remember last year’s competition, when Karczma narrowly beat Polish Meat Market for best borscht. This year we are upping the competition with the addition of Lomzynianka, Eat, and Divine Brine’s Robert Schaefer.
The rules of the competition are simple: Use local beets. We leave the rest open to the chefs, so expect some variety on different types of borscht and different ingredients. We need tasters like YOU to come sample the different soups and vote on your favorite to decide who reigns supreme! The competition will go from 10:30am – 12:30pm (or while the soup lasts) so come on by to taste and cast your vote.
In addition to the borscht-off, we are excited to announce the sale of Greenmarket DIRT. All that hard work hauling your food scraps can now be returned to your garden. See attached flyer for ways to preorder your bag and get a discount.
And lastly we want to help spread the word that this Sunday there will be an e-waste recycling event in McCarren Park just north of North 12th Street from 10am to 4pm. Please see the link here to get more information.
McCarren Park Greenmarket is open Saturdays from 8am-3pm on Union between Driggs and North 12th. Compost and textile drop off until 2pm.
