Weekly Greenmarket Reopening for the Season in the Bronx

GrowNYC’s Bronx Borough Hall Greenmarket will open on Tuesdays for the season, beginning Tuesday June 1st and continuing through November 23rd.

Located on 161st Street and Grand Concourse in the Bronx shoppers will find this Greenmarket, which offers fresh, locally grown vegetables, seasonal fruit, local honey, and quality baked goods, alongside Joyce Kilmer Park. To commemorate opening day, members of the Jazz Foundation will perform at market from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 1st.

GrowNYC’s Greenmarkets work to preserve local farmland while ensuring that New Yorkers across all five boroughs have access to fresh, healthy food grown right here in our region. A central component of Greenmarket’s mission and operations is product integrity: everything sold at market is 100% farmer grown, produced, caught, or foraged. In addition to operating farmers markets, Greenmarket is working to improve the health of all New Yorkers with a variety of food access strategies aimed at getting the healthiest, freshest food into the hands of those that need it most.
