Operated through Grow NYC, a privately funded nonprofit organization, the St. George Greenmarket visits the corner of St. Mark’s Place and Hyatt St. on Saturdays from 8am-2pm. The Greenmarket in St. George is one of 54 urban farmers markets operating in New York City, offering a wide variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables, flowers, cheese, meat, seafood and baked goods- all organic and all locally grown. Residents can also drop off their food scraps and rechargeable battery and mobile phone recyclables at the St. George Greenmarket location, and even view live cooking demonstrations. Information on how to participate in the recycling and composting projects that Grow NYC offers is also available at this location. The Greenmarket operates Saturdays from 8am – 2pm until November 23, 2013.
