Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm and market opens for its second season

Day 1 of the Brooklyn Grange farm stand in Astoria/LIC.

 

A year after its debut on a rooftop in Long Island City, the Brooklyn Grange is again open for business, with its super-local, organic produce for sale at markets in two boroughs.

The main market in the lobby of the farm’s building on Northern Boulevard at 38th Street in Astoria/LIC started its season today and will be open every Wednesday from 2:00-7:00PM. This year, the team has also started peddling their produce at the Brooklyn Flea all day on Saturdays.

If you stop by the main market, you can run up a few flights and witness the baffling sight of rows of veggies cropping up in front of the Manhattan skyline.

While last year’s market was generally quiet when we stopped by, the word seems to have gotten out. The market was bustling this afternoon with group tours and individual visitors exploring and purchasing.Brooklyn Grange

Hopefully the workers toiling away in the sticky heat are prepping for an abundant harvest.
