Market Scene: Madison Square is the Temporary Home of the Union Square Greenmarket
As we reported on Tuesday, the Union Square Greenmarket has been displaced by emergency vehicles parked in union square and is temporarily located at 23rd Street and Broadway, on the west side of Madison Square park and in adjacent Worth Square. The market will be in this location today and tomorrow, Saturday 11/10. There's no confirmation yet if next week's markets will be back to Union Square, but it seems unlikely. We'll keep you posted on that matter, or you can follow the Greenmarket on Twitter or Facebook for updates.
Although it's spread out across the west side of the park and a handful of traffic islands—look both ways before you cross from Tamarack Hollow to Flying Pigs Farm—nearly every farmer from the usual Friday lineup is in attendance today, aside from a few farms that were hurt by Sandy, including Blue Moon Fish and Stokes Farm. The market is still in full swing. Click through the slideshow for a closer look, and stop by the market this weekend! Farmers can use your support, as always, and shoppers are encouraged to fill an extra bag with produce to donate to City Harvest for Sandy relief right at the market.
The Union Square Greenmarket is temporarily located on the West side of Madison Square Park at Broadway and 23rd Street and in adjacent Worth Square, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The market will be at this location this Wednesday, 11/7, Friday, 11/9, and Saturday, 11/10. All regular Tuesday markets except for Staten Island Ferry Terminal are open today, 11/6, in their regular locations. For the latest updates, follow the Greenmarket on Twitter or Facebook.
