If you’re looking to go where the locals in New York City go, the Union Square Greenmarket is a must.
The Union Square Greenmarket is a great place to walk around, people watch, buy fresh produce and homemade goodies, and mingle with locals.
In addition to produce, you can also find fresh fish, meats, baked goods, prepared foods, cheese and other dairy, flowers, arts and crafts, and much more.
If you’re staying in a hostel and are cooking some of your meals, Union Square Greenmarket is a great place to buy food. It is fresh, it is local and its fun!
The Union Square Greenmarket is open four days a week, all year round. Local farmers from around New York City bring their produce and food into the City. For more information and directions, visit their website.
The selection of produce at the Greenmarket changes from season to season. If you’re there this fall or winter, be sure to try some the hot apple cider or hot chocolate!
