Jackson Heights Farmers' Market - it's back!

Helen F | May 5, 2002 11:35 AM

Didn’t see much publicity around the neighborhood, but the farmers' market is up & running early this year (34th Ave. between 77th & 78th). Only 4 vendors this morning: plant guy, egg people, and two of the regular guys, from S. Jersey, with asparagus. Lots of asparagus. Also some rhubarb.

One of the asparagus guys told us he’s expecting to be back in the coming weeks with berries, also peas & hothouse tomatoes.

Usually the market doesn’t start until July, so it will be great if this early start picks up steam and turns out to be profitable for the vendors. It's supposed to be open until 6 today.
