The organization Community Markets recently gained approval from Community Board 1 to open two farmers markets in Williamsburg this spring. The first market, at McGolrick Park, will open June 3, 2012, and run every Sunday from 11am to 4pm. (This market has been under discussion since last year.) The second market will run at Cooper Park, near the Morgan and Metropolitan avenues intersection. It also opens June 3rd and will run every Sunday from 11am to 4pm. A rep from Community Markets says, “Our goal for both markets is to recruit a complement of vendors and create an exciting market for local residents. The product mix we are striving for will include: fresh local fruits and vegetables, breads, pastries, meats as well as specialty foods such as chutneys, old fashioned pickles, salsas and jams.” Very nice!
