Now that summer is about to arrive, several fruits and vegetables are in season for the year! During the warm months it’s easier and more budget friendly to buy berries, asparagus, lettuce and other produce favorites. There are several Farmer’s Markets all around the Upper West Side that will be taking place throughout the summer and lasting into the fall season. Here are some close by markets that our Sagamore residents can stop by at to stock up your fridge or pick up a treat!
79th Street Greenmarket: Stop by this market a few blocks down from The Sagamore for some grass fed beef, fresh fish, ostrich, cheese, fresh flowers honey, baked goods and more! Of course they will have plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables from farms all around NY and NJ. The market is held every Sunday and also hosts fun activities on select Sundays including craft stations and cooking demonstrations. You can check out the calendar of events and the list of all the participating vendors on their website.
97th Street Greenmarket: A few blocks uptown from the Sagamore is the 97th Street Greenmarket which is taking place for the 25th year. Hosted every Friday, vendors come from all around to bring their fresh produce, grains and meat to the Upper West Side. Participating vendors include Gajeski Produce bringing their field and greenhouse grown vegetables, Pura Vida Fisheries from Long Island, and Bakers Bounty coming from NJ to share their baked goods. You can also participate in the recipe swap where you can exchange your best recipes for others using ingredients you can find right at the market.
Tucker Square Greenmarket: Every Thursday you can make your way down the Upper West Side to 66th street to visit the Tucker Square farmers market. Some of their fresh produce and items include squash, eggplant, berries, fresh fish, baked goods and much more. Vendors include Locust Grove Farms from Ulster County, Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse making its way from New Jersey and Meredith’s Country Bakery LLC.
