News From The Carroll Gardens Greenmarket

The Carroll Gardens Greenmarket, which is held every Sunday from 8 am to 3 pm on Carroll Street between Smith and Court Streets, has continued to bring fresh produce to the community throughout the summer and is now gearing up for a great fall season.

Gabriella Stern, the Greenmarket Manager and Outreach Coordinator, sent us some updates about our neighborhood's market. She writes:

"This season, we have an explosion of vegetables and fruit at the Carroll Gardens Greenmarket. The market should be your one-stop-shop for juicy and colorful heirloom tomatoes, fragrant herbs, fresh peppers, summer squash, and of course, fruit! Come shop now and take advantage of the end of the summer produce, because before you know it, we'll be back to eating winter squash.

Not sure what to do with all those tomotoes? In the midst of the hot summer nights, I've been avoiding turning on the stove. Instead, I marinate a few sliced heirloom tomatoes in salt, cumin, and coriander. I then serve them on toasted pita bread with a herbed yogurt sauce and cucumbers. It's an easy, quick and tasty summer dinner or lunch.

New to the market is Nolasco Farm who is selling fresh cut and potted flowers. It's still not too late to start an indoor, windowsill garden! If you're looking to get the most out of your outdoor grill, be sure to pick up some grassfed beef, pork, pasture raised chicken, or wild caught fish from Haywood's Fresh and Seatuck Fish!

The Annual Carroll Gardens Greenmarket Clam Bake will be on Sept 20th! Seatuck Fish will be dishing out samples of a tasty clams with stewed market vegetables. We are asking for a small donation per sample. The event will be held from 10:30am-1pm at the CG Greenmarket."

So make sure to stop by the market and don't forget to bring your compost.
