Cortelyou Greenmarket Update: Raffle and more farmers

Cortelyou Greenmarket

From Stacey McCarthy, market manager:
This Sunday, July 6, at the Cortelyou Road Farmers Market, come by the information table to enter the FREE RAFFLE of Greenmarket goodies donated by our market's farmers. Presented in a stylish Greenmarket tote bag, the raffle items will be available to pick up next Sunday, July 13.

This week promises to be a full house with the arrival of VICTOR PAVIA of El Mirador Farms. Victor tells me he will have a good selection of lettuce, herbs, summer squash and SQUASH BLOSSOMS. Victor, like Jorge Carmona of Amantai Farms, is part of the New Farmer Development Program, which "identifies, educates, and supports immigrants with agricultural experience by helping them become local farmers and establish small farms in the region." Pick up a program fact sheet at the information table to learn more about the program that trains the next generation of our regions farmers.
