GREENMARKET starts this Sunday!

Our favorite summer spot Hester Street Fair is adding fresh produce from local farms to its already awesome lineup of local goods and prepared foods. Greenmarket, the GrowNYC program that's responsible for the largest open-air farmers markets in the country, is partnering with the Fair to make this weekend destination even more green starting this Sunday.
To start things off right, there will be a cooking demonstration by Broadway East chef Sasha St. Germaine and a delicious assortment of produce and goods to be purchased. Jersey vegetables, fruit, and homemade preserves from Phillips Farm, specialty and wild foraged greens from Woori Farm, orchard fruit, award-winning cider, pies and pastries from Breezy Hill Orchard, and fresh eggs and pasta from Knoll Krest Farm will all be available for purchase! Oh boy, we're already planning a dinner party this Sunday just so we have an excuse to buy all this fresh produce.
We hear there are more exciting green initiatives to come from this little street fair, so keep an eye out!
