Year-Round Vendors at Brooklyn Greenmarkets

    by

    This post courtesy of Explore Brooklyn, an all-inclusive guide to the businesses, neighborhoods, and attractions that make Brooklyn great.

    Luckily, thanks to the non-profit GrowNYC, we Brooklynites have access to year-round, locally grown and organic products in greenmarkets spread throughout the borough. Not only can you take care of the lion’s share of your food shopping directly from local farmers, but you can also recycle clothes and recyclable batteries and drop off fruit and vegetable scraps to be converted to compost. Many of the greenmarkets also accept EBT cards.

    Following are seven greenmarkets you can find on the streets of Brooklyn.
