The summer season brings outdoor farmers’ markets and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) to Dumbo for the first time. The Dumbo Farmers’ Market season starts on June 15 through November 23 every Sunday from 11am to 5pm (rain or shine) at the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park on Main Street (Google map). The Dumbo Improvement District partnered with Community Markets to bring fresh, local produce and locally made products such as baked goods, flowers, dairy, fish, herbs, meat, and specialty foods every week to an area with an increase in residents in the past few years.
Also starting next week, on June 10 is the Dumbo/Vinegar Hill CSA. The CSA offers memberships to commit and pre-pay to buy fresh, locally grown organic vegetables from June 10 to November 11, distributed every Tuesday. With the market and CSA, Dumbo and Vinegar Hill residents have a convenient place to get their fresh produce and work towards a healthier summer.
