Garden and Market

The Union Square Greenmarket – seen here beyond the garden to the left – is a wonderful place to get fresh food from local farms.  It happens Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays year round.  And now a few people are selling the native plant species found in the garden. So you can come see the plants and then bring some home from the market.
