The LIC Post reports on a proposed farmers market for the Hunters Point section of LIC. It would be run by Down to Earth Farmers Markets, a company that runs 20 markets in Westchester County, Rockland County, and NYC. It will be located on 48th Avenue between Vernon Blvd and 5th Street, which is right about where the former greenmarket took place, which was run by GrowNYC.
The Hunters Point Civic Association approached Down To Earth about this farmers market, liked their presentation, and hope to get the right permits for this project. They believe they’ll have to close down the street, since the sidewalks are too narrow.
The market would be open, probably on Saturdays, from 9am-4pm, mid-May to mid-November. This is a slightly earlier schedule that the Socrates Greenmarket, which opens in late June.
