i need to buy a small amounts of herbs, veggies, corn etc .. on a consistent basis.
Looking for local or not too far from brooklyn/queens farms so i can buy bulk.
I am avoiding the farmers markets in bk.. they are too expensive.
Anyone know of a few i can look up?
The Queens farm has great produce, eggs, etc. with three caveats:
#1 Their items are not cheap;
#2 Some of the items they sell come from the Rothkamp farm, I believe, in Brookville and are NOT organic and are grown by conventional means.
#3 Their eggs sell out really quick
I have not been to the farm this year but this was true as of last year.
Have you tried the Brooklyn Grange (LIC/Queens despite the name)? I believe they sell at smorgasborg and at their own farm. I haven't bought from them, so I can't speak for it directly but I do have friends who have bough veggies and herbs from them.
