UPDATE: As of May 1st our market season has ended so we will not be participating in the market again until sometime in the Fall, however the Legion Park Farmers Market runs year round and many of your other favorite vendors stick it out during the summer heat to make sure you can keep coming to buy your favorite goodies. We will also continue hosting a pickup location at the market for online plant orders, so if you dont want to make the drive down to our nursery this is a good option for getting summer plants and gardening supplies.
We have been participating in the Legion Park Farmers Market for 6 years and love our market community very much. The market, managed by Urban Oasis Project, takes place every Saturday from 9am - 2pm in the Legion Park (6601 Biscayne Boulevard) in the historic MiMo District in the Upper East Side. The Legion Park has beautiful old oak trees lining a walkway to the Biscayne Bay, which is where the market vendors set up their varied stalls.
While our market may be small it is filled with amazing small businesses that are passionate about high quality local food. Our market is a producer only market when it comes to farms, so all produce sold there is guaranteed grown locally and responsibly (many markets welcome vegetable resellers who don't grow or sell any local produce). Non-farm vendors include a butcher, empanada makers, bakeries, kombucha & fermented goods, fresh made juices, soaps and body products, and ready made foods.
For more information on the market and vendors visit their Facebook page. Masks are currently required for all shoppers and virtual no contact payment options are preferred.
