Farmers Set Down Roots at City’s Primo Greenmarket
From The Villager: "The Union Square Greenmarket was New York City’s first and it is still the largest of the city’s 62 Greenmarkets. It opened in August 1976 with 10 farmers. Now there are around 140 farmers at Union Square. They sell their wares on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. — vegetables, fruit, flowers, bread, cheese and other dairy products, wine, lavender and much more."
