Best NYC Farmers’ Markets

Union Square Greenmarket

Farmers’ Markets are by far the best bet when you want to purchase (or sell) fresh, flavorful, in-season produce. Some are open all week long, all year long, and others are weekend-only or summer-only operations.

Supporting local farmers’ markets doesn’t just get you tasty food, either. It also lets you give back to and sustain the local economy—something we desperately need to do these days. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy free samples, mingling with friendly vendors, and discovering new and delicious food and products?
