Anyone know where these types of markets are..preferable NE Queens but anywhere would be Ok. I found one in Brooklyn near the Library in Park Slope...cant seem to find one here.

Any help would be appreciated.

    There are 4 Greenmarket locations in Queens:

    map and hours of your local markets

    And this posted by hounder breadnchocolate:
    "east new york farms - they have a farmer's market every saturday at the end of the 3 line in new lotts - with local grown produce (and they do it with lots of topsoil and with attention to health and safety concerns etc.) - lots of caribbean specialty crops - also freshly made food and crafts."

      Admittedly have just been there once - but - I went in August to the Atlas Park location and was pretty disappointed. It was really just one table and the selection was very limited. I used to live in Park Slope so I was used to the one at Grand Army Plaza. I didn't expect Atlas Park to be that big by any means but still I thought there would be a few more vendors. Hopefully it's become a little bigger.

        The vendors in the Jackson Heights location are winding down. This past Sunday, I heard a couple of them mention that they were planning to come only one or two more weeks.
