Herilooms Galore from Wilklow Orchards

This spring, Wilklow Orchards arrived in Union Square! They’ve been selling their incredible array of tomatoes and other fresh produce and baked goods in Brooklyn greenmarkets for decades. And now, every Monday, we can find them in Union Square. I, for one, have been gorging on their colorful and delicious heirloom tomatoes.  They also make hard cider from their own apples. Come on Mondays and pick up some green zebras or black princes!

Weekend Market Picks

Saturday, September 9, 2017

Chelsea Farmers Market: It’s funny to think of Chelsea as a food desert, but there is a paucity of fresh produce there if you don’t want to walk to Union Square or to the Village to find a closer market. That’s why Down To Earth’s Saturday market is so special – it brings beautiful produce and freshly prepared foods to the neighborhood. 9AM – 4PM, Sidewalk on North side of 23rd Street, E of 9th Avenue, Manhattan

South Bronx Farmers Market: This important market serves its local community by bringing fresh farm produce every Saturday, plus herbs, proteins, baked goods, and even particularly local produce from a hydroponic farm, Sky Vegetables, right in the Bronx. 1oAM – 4PM, 138th Street, between Willis and Alexander Avenues, in Mott Haven, South
