Today’s opening of the Parkside market follows a big push from the neighborhood, including numerous people signing a petition in December to bring the market to the plaza in front of the Q. The Q at Parkside notes that, “with very little outside financial support, local do-gooder Seeds in the Middle has worked with us to open a market on Friday afternoons (1-6pm) and at the plaza at Empire/Flatbush/Ocean on Saturdays.”
And, for all of you closer to Cortelyou, there’s also good news in the greenmarket department: healthbucks are back! from July to November, shoppers using EBT/food stamps can get an extra $2 coupon for every $5 spent at the Cortelyou farmers’ market, which begins at 8am every Sunday. These healthbuck coupons are good until Nov. 15 for any fresh produce at any greenmarket.
