Farmers Market

Greenmarket Hosts its First-Ever Dance Party, a Fundraiser for Farms

In the past we’ve always worn heels to the Greenmarket’s swanky annual fundraiser–usually held at some fine hall here in Manhattan–but this time around we’re considering more practical footwear. In conjunction with Harvest Home, another non-profit group that runs farmers’ markets in the city, they’re hosting their first-ever dance party next Wednesday night, December 7th at the Bell House in Brooklyn. (It’s just a block or two from the F/R train.) Edible Brooklyn is co-sponsoring the shindig, which they’re calling the Winter Warm Up.

Forget the Cookbook, What You Missed at Today’s Greenmarket was Cauliflower, in Two Colors

If you skipped the Edible Brookyn Cookbook sale and signing at Union Square Greenmarket today (that’s us below) no worries: The book’ll be back at Manhattan’s biggest market next month. (You can also score a signed copy at the Barnes & Noble tomorrow night in Park Slope, Brooklyn, or on Saturday at Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket.) But you also missed the cauliflower wizardry of market manager David Sherman. He’s there every Monday and Wednesday, and when some famous chef or cookbook author isn’t cooking for shoppers, he is.
