Farmer's Market Saturday and Podcast #6

OK OK, I know it's Sunday, but I needed a little extra time to get this post and podcast out. Yesterday, I interviewed Chris Gatto, the Manager of the Inwood Greenmarket.

We spoke about the New York City Greenmarket program, and its efforts to bring communities together around Farm Fresh Foods. Chris talks about the New Farmer Development Program, and about educating consumers about the various choices they have. The Grenmarket is a division of the Council on the Environment of NYC, (, and you can find a map of the New York City Greenmarkets here.

During the show, we mentioned that Inwood Hill Park is home to a pair of Bald Eagles, which have their own Bald Eagle Webcam

I also said I'd post some maps of the neighborhood so non-resident can get a sense of where Inwood is. Well, it took a little time, but I managed to go one better than a map. Check these out (You can click them to get more detail):

Ah, I used to live just a block from there, but before the greenmarket started. Inwood, particularly that part of it near the park, is a really great place to live. Now I live in Astoria, which is pleasant, but not nearly as green, and the nearest greenmarket is in an inconvenient part of Long Island City. It's easier now just to take the subway to Union Square...

Just learned about your blog, Mark, and looking forward to reading more!

Thanks "anonymous"! Yes, this is just the second year of the Inwood Greenmarket. Chris mentioned to me that he hopes to get musical entertainment, and asked me to start doing cooking demos to make the market more of a destination. :-)
