Our Greenmarket offers our neighbors a variety of nutritious and locally sourced produce, fish, and baked goods. Buying local also lowers our footprint!

In addition, our Greenmarket has become a gathering place, providing community members a venue to interact and share recipes and information about healthy eating.

Our Greenmarket also provides a convenient place to drop off our old batteries, number 5 plastics, and corks, to be recycled.

Those are just a few of the benefits that our Greenmarket has given us, as a neighborhood.

Needless to say, it’s the wish of individuals throughout the area that this Greenmarket continues to expand and thrive in our neighborhood for 2012.
