Back for its third season, the Flushing Greenmarket is launching at Maple Playground tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Run by GrowNYC, the greenmarket is open every Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from July 11 to November 22.

Why go? The Department of Health is hosting nutrition education workshops and cooking demonstrations in English, Chinese and Spanish.

Every participant over 18 years old will receive a $2 Health Bucks coupon that can be used for buying fruits and vegetables.

If you have food scraps, the greenmarket will also take them until 1 p.m. The collection will be taken to Queens Botanical Garden to be turned into compost.
