The world-famous Union Square Greenmarket is our flagship market. What began with just a few farmers in 1976 has grown exponentially over the past 33 years, transforming this once dangerous, crime-ridden area and into a dynamic and vibrant public space.
The Union Square Greenmarket currently operates on approximately 2 acres of parkland and hosts over 140 Producers each week: these two acres of market have directly preserved over 12,500 acres of regional farmland.
As our biggest market, the seasonal bounty is unparalleled with hundreds of varieties to choose from during any given season. From just-picked fresh fruits and vegetables, to heritage meats and award-winning farmstead cheeses, artisan breads, jams, pickles, a profusion of cut flowers and plants, wine, ciders, maple syrup and much more.
Located in one of New York City's great public spaces, Union Square is a wonderful place for people watching too--catch local chefs from the city's top restaurants shopping early in the morning for the freshest ingredients; take some time to chat with your local farmer and learn about their growing practices; taste what's cooking during one of our many cooking demos; and don't be surprised if you rub shoulders with the odd celebrity as you reach for those garlic scapes!
