DUMBO farmer’s market

The Dumbo Improvement District’s DUMBO Farmers’ Market will operate every Sunday, now to mid-November, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine, at the corner of Main and Plymouth streets (entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park).

For the inaugural DUMBO Farmers’ Market, the Improvement District recruited Community Markets from Ossining, New York to secure a diverse assortment of farms.

Community Markets is an organization that believes strongly in three ideas: supporting local agriculture, strengthening local communities, and making fresh produce available to neighborhoods with limited access.

For the DUMBO Farmers’ Market, Community Markets will bring farms featuring berries, fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce at the market will be complemented by pastries, handmade tortillas, specialty breads, barrel pickles, organic roasted nuts, maple syrup, honey and pasture raised meats.

Other specialty items featured at the market on an occasional basis include hot sauce made in Brooklyn, Indian chutneys and hand-made soaps.
