NEW YORK CITY | The Union Square Greenmarket started in 1976 with just a few farmers and has grown to become one of New York City’s largest farmers markets. Open all year round, the market sees up to 140 regional farmers, fishers, and bakers showcase their wares. Expect things like fresh fruits and vegetables, heritage meats farmstead cheeses, artisan breads, jams, pickles, cut flowers and plants, wine, ciders, maple syrup and more.

Much of the produce is organic or naturally-grown, and all of it is local. Being able to sell direct to customers has allowed many of New York’s smaller farms to stay in business, and many will take pre-orders if you give them a week’s notice about a particular kind of produce, fish, and meat, or a specific cut.

It’s not just the produce that’s on offer here either. Union Square Greenmarket hosts a variety of events like cooking demonstrations, interactive displays, tastings, and book signings. Check out their website for details on what’s on when you’re planning to visit.

Finally, as a great gesture, several vendors donate the day’s unsold produce to City Harvest, which directs food donations to food pantries and soup kitchens across New York City.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
