I came for the flowers, but stayed for the chickens. A few weeks back I came across Jennifer Small of Flying Pigs Farm at a Greenmarket demonstration speaking about raising chickens, farm life, and answering questions from people who were curious about raising chickens in the city.
View your invite for the upcoming Native Plants Demonstration on May 3rd and a few shots from the market from these past weeks...
It was very nice to meet Jennifer Small, learn about what she does and also learn more about the story behind what she sells. These events seem perfect for giving the public a chance to ask the talented and experienced Greenmarket vendors questions about all aspects of what they do - without holding up the line at their stand!
Some vendors have moved to Union Square South while there is construction on the north side of the market. This also has affected the market's abilities to host events - but next weekend's native plants and wildflower events are still on! Stop by to learn and grab some free information and seeds~
