Today at the Forest Hills Greenmarket

If you are brave enough to weather the horrible heat and humidity out there today, here's a little update on what's available at our Greenmarket today. The toll the weather is taking was apparent, by the way: there was no live music today. Also, Ronnybrook Dairy had only a limited amount of stuff on sale because of the heat.

But, on a positive note, the Summer Fruits are finally here!

Our Greenmarket is open until 3 p.m. today, but I wouldn't be surprised if the vendors close up shop a bit early...


  1. The guitar guy was still there around 12pm

    1. Stop and Shop Peaches, plums, nectarines....$1.99 per lb...oh so juicy and sweet....the best!

    2. Sadly for those of us without a car - stop and shop might as well be in a different state.

    3. The Q23 bus stops right across the street from S&S.

    4. Good to know, but not sure how feasible it is for residents in Forest Hills to shop for groceries on a bus. You're limited to whatever you can can carry in hand and for that, you're better off just shopping at the market...or *gasp* Key Food! The time and energy saver is worth the couple of cents more you're paying here.

      Disclaimer: I dont have a car and would love to get one if 1) Parking wasnt nearly $200 in my lot and 2) the neighborhood wasn't so car-unfriendly. I have a Zipcar account, but boy are those pricey on the weekend.

  2. $6 for cherries?!?!
