Tribeca Green Market has gained popularity in recent years and is a go-to destination for neighborhood locals to stock up on organically-grown produce, fresh meats and cheeses among many other delectables. The market is open year-round on Saturdays and is also open on Wednesdays from March to December. The Tribeca Green Market may not offer the same selection as the well-known Union Square Farmers Market, but it is far less crowded allowing your shopping experience to feel much more relaxed – a crucial element to curating the perfect New York Saturday.
Vendors at the Tribeca Green Market include Maple Avenue Farm, Francesca’s Bakery, and Millport Dairy. Whether you’re in the mood for tasting artisanal cheeses, sampling wines from the Finger Lakes region, or stocking up on fresh produce needed to try your hand at a new recipe, the Tribeca Green Market is the perfect one stop shop for your shopping needs.
The Tribeca Green Market is a part of Grow NYC, an organization committed to educating communities about the importance of living healthy lives and taking care of the environment. The market promotes recycling and composting and is a great resource to teach community youth about the importance of recycling and healthy eating. The Tribeca Greenmarket is also a great activity for the family. In between browsing stalls, parents and kids alike will enjoy cooking demonstrations, recipe exchanges, and other activities designed to bring the residential community together. The New Greenmarket Cookbook showcases recipes from renowned chefs including José Andrés, April Bloomfield, and Daniel Boulud. The book discusses how these chefs creatively integrate seasonal flavors into their recipes and also showcases the farmers who grew the actual produce used in developing the featured dishes.
The Tribeca Green Market is a quick 5 minute walk from The Duane Street Hotel, an Earthview property. In addition to being environmentally-friendly, the hotel is also a strong supporter of Autism awareness and launched a new creative platform to help the cause: Fashion for Autism. By purchasing an edgy tee or an eco-friendly canvas tote, you can simultaneously support this great cause and help the environment by shopping with a reusable tote. So this Saturday, stop by the Duane Street Hotel and treat yourself to some swag for a good cause and then head down to the Tribeca Green Market for a feel-good, green shopping experience!
