Putnam Triangle Youthmarket

Shop this new GrowNYC weekly market presented by FAB FULTON in partnership with Fort Greene Council, Inc. Every Wednesday through Oct. 25, Putnam Triangle Youthmarket will offer fresh, affordable produce from regional farms, while also engaging neighborhood youth by teaching them small business skills, nutrition education, and much more. The market’s close proxmity to the Fort Greene Council Senior Center will ideally better serve the area’s seniors produce options at affordable prices. And shoppers can round out their market day by stopping by FAB’s fine grocery stores, wine shops, bakeries and other businesses along Fulton Street!

The Youthmarket sources all of its food from Greenmarket Co., a wholesale distribution service offered by GrowNYC. Greenmarket Co. is designed to bring the freshest, highest-quality regionally grown farm products to the New York City community. Although weekly selection will vary, Youthmarket’s produce comes from local farms, mostly in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maine. (You can see the full list of participating farms at the GrowNYC website (link is external).)

The Putnam Triangle Youthmarket accepts cash, SNAP/EBT, debit/credit, WIC & Senior FMNP coupons. The market is located in front of Fort Greene Council, Inc. at 966 Fulton Street; hours are 9am to 2pm, every Wednesday from Sept. 6 to Oct. 25.
