Student-Run Farmers Market at PS 11 in Chelsea

[Cabbages grow at Stoneledge Farm in upstate New York]

There’s a new farmer’s market in the neighborhood– and it’s run entirely by students. Starting next week, you can stop by Wednesday mornings for some fresh seasonal veggies!

PS 11, an elementary school, is partnering with the Chelsea CSA to sell local, organic produce at affordable prices from Stoneledge Farm in upstate New York, part of an initiative at the school on healthy eating. There will be cooking demonstrations, recipes and tips to help families learn about the food and discover new ways to enjoy healthy, local, and seasonal produce. Next week, learn how to make Southwestern Slaw with bok choy and napa cabbage.

Wednesdays, 8:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
June 18 – November 28
320 W. 21st Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues)
