Carroll Gardens Greenmarket Planning Some Great Spring Events

As the weather becomes warmer and the neighborhood re-awakens after a long winter slumber, the Carroll Gardens Greenmarket is celebrating the arrival of spring with a series of events that you might want to check out.

For the next few Sundays, Market Manager Julia Raggio has scheduled the following:

Sunday, March 19th: 8am-3pm
Greenmarket Grains will be making a highly-anticipated appearance at Carroll Gardens Greenmarket! Pick up some hearty salad staples, like Farro and Freekeh, or some unique Wheat flours made from all locally sourced grains. Learn more about the Greenmarket Grains project, and support farms striving to grow more grain in our region.

Sunday, April 4th: 10:30am-12:30pm
Special guest Isa Rodrigues visits us from the Textile Arts Center, for a hands-on demonstration on how to dye fabrics using natural materials. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to learn a skill for more sustainable crafting!

Sunday, April 30th: 10:30am-12:30pm
Hetty McKinnon, blogger, and author of two incredible cookbooks (Community, and the highly anticipated follow-up,  Neighbourhood, to be released this summer), visits Carroll Gardens Greenmarket for a guest cooking demonstration.

So mark your calendar and stop by the market for fresh veggies, fruits, plants and so much more.
