Union Square Greenmarket Tomorrow

I need to do some serious shopping at the Greenmarket tomorrow, but I have meetings until late. Does anyone know what time the vendors will be up and running in the AM? I know they get there early and tomorrow is probably their biggest day, but do you think they will be selling by 7?

  1. I usually walk by between 8 and 8:30, and they are definitely still setting up around 8. I'd be surprised if you could really get all your shopping done at 7am.
    Sometimes I go on my lunch break...

    1. I've been a regular at the Greenmarket for many years, and yes, tomorrow is a crazy day. Most of the vendors will be there before 7 unless they get caught in traffic. On weekdays there are more issues with that than Saturday. Many of them come from FAR away (Albany, the Finger Lakes, PA-not near Philly), so that can cause problems, but I'll make an educated guess (based on previous years) that there will be quite a coterie of them set up by 7.
