As bare branches welcome leaves and teensy tiny little buds start to sprout up through the cracks in the sidewalk (even if only for a minute, before it's trampled by foot traffic), you've got more motivation than ever to buy your produce outdoors. The question is, who has the best? That's our question to you, anyway. Since we know you're ready to spout out your answer, faster than you can grab your keys and get on down there, we asked you:
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE NEW YORK FARMERS MARKET?
Our Scout says:
It's a little out of the way, but I always have good luck at the Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza Greenmarket. You can get your produce, meat and cheese for the week or just put together a fresh lunch to enjoy while sitting in the sun on one of their many park benches. A very nice way to spend an hour or two, indeed.
The Union Square Greenmarket.
I know it's all the way down by the South Street Seaport, but I really like the New Amsterdam Market.
- Keith Gregory
The Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket in Prospect Park is great. Even if it weren't the closest one to my house, I'd still make a point of going there.
- Jared Tibler
The Hester Street Fair is my favorite! It's not just a farmers market, per se, but it does have that component.
- Tracy Yarding
If you're in Fort Greene, the Fort Greene Park Greenmarket is where it's at.
- Sarah Richy
I love the Tribeca Greenmarket on Wednesdays and Saturdays and it just keeps getting bigger, which is awesome!
- Jake Samuels
Tompkins Square Greenmarket is my favorite.
- Trey Bowlin
I know it's not technically a "farmers market," but I really like walking through Chelsea Market to do my shopping.
- Kate Murphy
