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.
