NYC Green Market looking to make Harlem its home, feedback needed

A reader dropped us a line over the weekend we found interesting. Apparently there is a NYC Green Market movement actively discussing bringing a farmers market to the vacant lot in Harlem at West 117 Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd. This is the space where the Harlem Pop Up Green Market was held last year. In order to help make it a reality, Grow NYC needs to gain enough community feedback to demonstrate a strong need and desire for the market. They are looking to hear from us.

If interested in providing feedback, send Margaret Hoffman, Green Market Regional Coordinator, an email stating your interest and support of the market in this part of Harlem. Word is they need to get community responses soon to even consider the market. Here is Margaret’s email: mhoffman@greenmarket.grownyc.org.
