Fresh, delectable, straight-from-the-farm fruit and vegetables are coming to Kensington this summer. Kensington Youthmarket will be open on Saturdays from July 9th through October 29th, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., on Fort Hamilton Parkway (between E. 5th and E. 4th streets).
GrowNYC will buy fresh fruit and vegetables from Greenmarket's local/regional family farmers--which promotes local agriculture--and our neighborhood's young people will run the farm stand--which gives them an opportunity to earn money, get training in the skills needed to run a small business (promotion, merchandising, and customer service), and learn about health and nutrition.
The Youthmarket Program Coordinator is Olivia Blanchflower. Phone: (212) 341-0476. Online: GrowNYC contact form.
