An ever-growing list of places to find local foods in Brooklyn (and sometimes in the other 4 boroughs...)
Brooklyn Flea: Not only can you find antiques, records and vintage eyeglasses, you can also find both fresh food from local vendors (many of whom use local ingredients), you can also find things like local ricotta, local sodas, and local bread.
Brooklyn Grange: A huge, commercial rooftop farm (actually located in Long Island City, Queens, not Brooklyn). They sell their food at local markets and have a CSA. They used to come to the Brooklyn Flea on Saturdays in Fort Greene, but now they're at the new all-food market Smorgasburg in Williamsburg. Stupid Willimsburg. It keeps taking all the cool stuff away from our flea market.
Eagle Street Rooftop Farm: a 6,000 square foot green roof organic vegetable farm located atop a warehouse rooftop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. During New York City’s growing season, the farmers at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm supply a community supported agriculture (CSA) program, an onsite farm market, and bicycle fresh produce to area restaurants. They have a variety of educational programs about topics such as urban gardening/farming, soap-making and bee keeping.
Just Food: A NYC Organization founded in 1995 that is dedicated to creating partnerships between farmers and NYC residents and promoting access to healthy food for all New Yorkers. The focus on creating CSAs for communities and neighborhoods throughout the city, urban farming projects, food eduction (how to store and cook a variety of fresh foods), providing fresh produce for soup kitchens and food pantries, and food justice. If you want to join a CSA in any of the 5 boroughs of New York, this is the place to look.
Greene Harvest CSA: This is the CSA that I'm a member of. They are a very cool community of people who have a lot of information on local foods.
NYC Greenmarket Farmer's Markets: These are the people who run all of the markets in the City. They also have resources for composting, recycling batteries and electronics devices, and recycling textiles. You can find your nearest Farmer's Market here.
