Address: Union Square , New York, US
If you think a city-based farmers’ market is a new-age novelty, think again. A trip to Union Square Greenmarket on a Saturday is enough to convince even the most die-hard supermarket shoppers that sustainable, local, and slow-grown groceries are not a passing trend. Since 1976, Greenmarket has done an amazing job in making fresh food accessible to New Yorkers, growing one group of 12 vendors into a network of more than 230 farmers and fisherman and 53 markets around the boroughs. The Union Square location is its flagship, and operates on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Brand-loyal? Look up the list vendors—updated every day the market is open—to see who’s selling.
