How To Shop Queens Farmers Markets & Green Markets

There are two shopping strategies. One is to go early for best selection, and the other is to go late to get the best prices. Naturally in the beginning of the day farmers have their entire inventory to show you, while late in the day, they may be open to reasonable requests for discounts so that they have less to carry back to the farm.

Greenmarkets / Farmers Markets 2015 - Queens NY

Ten of the fourteen outdoor markets are sponsored by Grow NYC which is run by the City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation and the Council on the Environment of NYC. The Flushing Farmers market and the Jamaica Farmers market are managed and sponsored by an independent company - Down To Earth Markets. The Flushing farmers market is done in collaboration with the Queens Botanical Garden, and the Jamaica Farmers markets [Friday & Saturday] are done in collaboration with the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, a non-profit organization in Jamaica. One of the other farmers markets in Flushing is managed by Queens Community House, a non-profit and open near Queens College. And the last of the farmers market certain to open is operated by Brooklyn Grange, an environmentally oriented rooftop farm.
