Farmers' Market


Our two community-run farmers markets make fresh food available and affordable, while building our local economy and creating places for neighbors to meet and greet. We've worked hard to expand and improve our selection, so come on out and see what our vendors have to offer.

The East New York Farmers Market is a community-run market including 23 local gardeners, 3 regional farmers, and 11 local vendors.  Together we serve over 14,000.  Since 1998 we have been providing fresh produce, homemade and crafts and a safe public space for families in East New York, Brooklyn.  Our market is the only place in East New York to find local and organic produce and Caribbean speciality crops like karela, bora, and callaloo.

Local vendors meet monthly to plan the market and make decisions about the project. Vendors, cumulatively, provide over 120 hours of volunteer work. Their outreach to the community includes market advertisement, event planning and educating local residents about food justice.

Come visit our markets:

Saturdays, June - November, 9 PM - 3 PM

Schenck Avenue Between New Lots and Livonia Avenues

Wednesdays, July - October, 3:30 PM - 6:30 PM

New Lots Avenue between Alabama and Georgia Avenues

We accept Farmers' Market Nutrition Program coupons (FMNP), EBT/Food Stamps, and cash.

We are always recruiting new vendors!  If you would like to sell produce, crafts, cooked food or other handmade items, please call us at 718-649-7979 x29.
