Greenmarket, the popular farmers market of GrowNYC, returns to The New York Botanical Garden at the base of Library Allée inside the Garden’s Mosholu Gate entrance every Wednesday, June 19 through November 27, 9 a.m.–3 p.m. For the 12th year, the farmers market continues to bring affordable, locally grown produce and fresh, nutritious baked goods to the Bronx. Heart Smart activities, part of the MetLife Healthy Families Program, made possible through the generous support of MetLife Foundation, will teach visitors how easy it is to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle and improve their cardiovascular health. Visitors can pick up a map that outlines a self-guided, narrated walking tour around the Garden. Participation in each of these activities is free to the public.
