After asking Where Have the Supermarkets Gone? we’re happy to find out there is some relief for those seeking fresh food in Harlem.
A market featuring organic produce grown on Katchkie Farm in Columbia County will be held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through mid-November in the yard at P.S./I.S. 180M, a public school on 120th Street between Morningside and Manhattan Avenues. Students will run the market to raise money for an educational trip to Europe.
Liz Neumark’s Katchkie Farm has been working with the school through its Sylvia Center to teach kids about food, health, and the environment. It’s great to see this exchange open up to the larger community through the market.
