The weather is warmer, the birds are singing, the flowers are in bloom and our favorite community tradition, the Union Square Farmers Market, is just around the corner. But this year, your community living room is taking a break for spring cleaning.
You’ve probably heard, the landscape for farmers markets has changed drastically as we all grapple with how best to access nutrient-dense foods in the face of a global pandemic.
Thanks to the City’s support in ensuring a safe environment, your favorite farmers market is back this season, but with a different feel. Starting Saturday, May 23 you can pick up your freshest foods from your local farmers, but our usual emphasis on friendly gathering is shifting. Instead… think more “farmers market sweep.”
We’re asking customers to keep it clean and keep it quick by making selections as efficiently as possible, maintaining social distancing and most importantly, following public health mandates.
So elect your most proficient produce-spottin’ personage to represent your household and let’s keep access to local foods flowin!
Union Square Farmers Market is integral to the Union Square community. It is a catalyst for vibrancy, community, and economic activity in Union Square. The Market provides visitors and residents with top-quality, fresh, and local produce at fair prices; encourages healthy eating and active lifestyle values; educates consumers about farming and locally sourced foods; and provides customers with opportunities to interact directly with farmers. The Market also provides information and education about community issues, promotes local activities and businesses, and provides opportunities for the community to gather and visit.
