Alright everyone, take out your list of reasons you can’t eat the good local stuff. You know, the one that starts, “I really believe in eating local and I totally would, but…” and lists items such as “I’m too busy to make it to my farmer’s market!” “Key Food is right around the corner from my place!” and “I’m always at work during market hours!” Well, cross those items off your list, working stiffs: Foodshed Market lets you buy local on a Tuesday night.
Foodshed Market is an indoor farmer’s market held at the Commons, a community and educational center on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Since September of last year, they’ve offered vegetables, fruit, baked goods, and more from local farmers and producers at their weekly market, much of which is certified organic. Their Sunday markets run from 11am to 5pm, but since the end of May, Foodshed has also been operating a Tuesday night market from 4pm to 8pm, perfect for those of us working nine to five (what a way to make a living!)
Now, cross off that list of excuses, make a grocery list on the back, and get yourself to Foodshed!
