Typical Sunday at the Greenmarket

The Greenmarket is open year around, Sundays from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at Travers Park on 34th Ave at 78th Street. Reflecting the culinary diversity of one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city, the market offers a broad selection of vegetables, fruit, eggs, fish, honey, sustainably-raised meat and specialty Mexican produce.

The Greenmarket has been in existence since 2009, and is now the largest in Queens. The market wraps around the edge of Travers Park, drawing a large crowd of long-time residents, young couples, and families who come to shop, enjoy the lively scene, and socialize with their neighbors.

The market is operated by GrowNYC.
