Carroll Gardens Sunday Greenmarket: Milk Thistle Farm Milk?

pitu May 30, 2009 03:15 PM

Anybody know if the fresh milk people are in Carroll Gardens yet? I missed them today at GAP. From their site I see there's a Sunday market in Carroll Gardens, but maybe they aren't there until June....

from http://www.milkthistlefarm.com/buy.php
Carroll St (between Court & Smith), Brooklyn

btw, I like them because a. the milk is awesome b. they sell low-fat milk
It's not inexpensive, but it's really good

    Missed them, as in got there too late? I'm pretty sure I saw them there at 8-8:30. I'm not there too often and I don't know many of the vendors and their name stuck in my head. Wasn't in a dairy mode so I didn't look any further.
    Glad for the recommendation though.

      Milk Thistle has been at GAP for weeks. I got to GAP too late today, so I'm hoping to catch up with them tomorrow at the CG market.

      Carroll Gardens folks -- was/is milk at your Greenmarket Sunday?

            Sorry to be such a dope, but where is this one located? I got conflicting results when I did a Google search

          Is Milk Thistle something new? I haven't been to GAP in ages, but I always remember Ronnybrook being there with huge lines.

            Not that new...although before I got it upstate at Hawthorne Valley's little grocery store.
            Milk Thistle is organic, and I think it's a much smaller operation. Last year might have been their first season at GAP.
