☞ SHOP: A Year - Round Harlem Farmers Market

A petition has been started to have the Morningside Farmers Market to open for the full year instead of shutting down in early December.  About 37 more signatures needed before the document can be sent to the appropriate parties:

Due to the popularity of the Morningside Park Farmers Market, Down to Earth Markets (formerly Community Markets) wants to expand it into a year-around farmers market. Currently, the NYC Parks Department permits the market for only 29 days per year. We know the community wants fresh, locally-grown and produced food beyond this limited period of time! Should we be permitted to extend the market, we will resume in our current outdoor location at 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue on Saturday, January 5th, 2013. Several vendors will return for the extended market, and it's possible other vendors will join in for the first time. Join this campaign: CLICK HERE TO SIGN

  1. This such a benefit to our community, not least because of the fresh produce, but also because it provides a meeting place to strengthen the community. It is great to see neighbors in the open air and in passing and this is an excellent means of bringing a community together. I hope this happens year round as the continuity as well helps with shopping plans. I whole heartedly support this and signed the petition. I hope others among us sign as well to reach the required number of signatures.
