Morningside Park Farmers' Market Doubles In Size: Goes From One Vendor To Two
Cheryl and I went to the Morningside Park Farmers' Market on the plaza at 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue a few Saturdays ago and were not too impressed. The entire market consisted of one vendor with some broccoli raab, a slightly different kind of broccoli raab, and a few bunches of radishes.
The following Saturday saw two vendors and a somewhat better selection of goods. In addition to the broccoli raab and radishes, there was a decent selection of apples and flowering house plants. Also, the vendors were more engaging than the week before, when they were sitting in their truck completing the Daily News crossword puzzle.
I'm giving the market the benefit of the doubt and holding final judgement until next month. The Community Markets website claims that it opened April 8th, but the sign posted on the plaza reads that it does not officially start until June. I'm hoping that this is just the preseason and things will pick up in the coming weeks.
The market is open every Saturday from 9am to 5pm through November.
