September 20th, 2009 · No Comments

Interested in locally raised food and New York City farmers markets?

Check out this video by Serious Eats (a foodie blog not to be missed).

The Green and Farmers Markets around New York City are a great way to get food direct from the farmer.

Why is this good?

  • You are getting food that is fresher than the alternative (unless you own your own farm of you have a big enough garden to feed yourself and your family).
  • You are supporting local farmers (they receive 100% of the profit this way) and allows family farms to stay in business.
  • With weekly sales, farmers can harvest their produce at the peak of flavor
  • You get a large selection of quality products
  • Forms a bond between farmer and consumer, builds community.

New York City is a good market for farmers due to the population alone and therefore you get a larger amount of farmers from all over the New York area.  Long Island is well represented with 12 Farms on Greenmarkets List of Farmers.
