The Maple Playground Greenmarket, located at Kissena Boulevard and Maple Avenue in Downtown Flushing, is running this year until November 27.

The greenmarket was launched in the summer of 2016 with the support of the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce and GrowNYC, a nonprofit that seeks to improve NYC’s quality of life through environmental programs that transforms communities block by block.

The greenmarket will be open every Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. It provides residents with access to farm-fresh food from R&G Produce Vegetables in New York’s Orange County.

The Department of Health’s Stellar Farmers’ Markets Program has also conducted weekly bilingual nutrition education workshops and cooking demonstrations.

The market accepts WIC and FMNP checks, as well as SNAP payments.
