Besides fresh produce, plants and recycling, there are always wonderful events planned at the Carroll Gardens Greenmarket, which is held year-round on Sundays from 8 and to 3 pm.
Below is a list of some fun and useful happenings that are coming up in the next few weeks.
Read on:

It’s beginning to looks a lot like Spring (and maybe even Summer) at the Carroll Gardens Greenmarket! The market is in full swing for the 2015 season as all of our farmers have returned with plenty to offer. Besides an explosion of spring greens, lettuces, and asparagus. We’re already seeing some spring fruit make its way to the market too: think strawberries. Last week, we saw lots of radishes, Swiss Chard, and fresh herbs!

Do you have a green thumb? Many of our farms have herb and flower transplants ready for your windowbox or garden!

Returning to Carroll Gardens in June is the Pop-Up Repair! Bring your broken household objects in need of some tender, love, and care. The folks at Pop-Up Repair will fix it within a week. They will be repairing objects the following Sundays (8am-3pm) at Carroll Gardens:
Drop off broken stuff: June 7 and 14
Pick up fixed stuff: June 14 and 21
