One more reason Astoria is the food center of the universe!  Now all we need is a butcher and fish market set up next to the farmers market.  See you all there.  I see some recipe fun happening on WLA.

Finally, the bountiful Greenmarket that Astorians and Long Island City residents have been waiting for. We’re thrilled to announce the opening of our newest Greenmarket, in partnership with Socrates Sculpture Park.  Farmers from the region will be bringing the first harvest of the season – a wide variety of fruit, vegetables, and herbs, as well as delicious cheeses, sustainably raised meat, and handmade breads & baked goods.
