East New York Farms is a really cool program in a neighboring neighborhood. It’s a community-based group that brings together neighborhood gardeners, local entrepreneurs, youth leaders, and regional farmers to create a vibrant public market. The ENY Farmers’ Market will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a street fair today on New Lots Avenue, between Hendrix and Jerome Streets. The Anniversary Celebration will feature live performances by local groups including Lyrical Artist, the Gowanus Wildcats, and Non-P. There will also be free ice cream from Ronnybrook Dairy Farm, face painting, a cooking contest, a storytelling and crafts station, health screenings, raffles, and giveaways. The fair is on Saturday Sept 20th from 9am to 5pm, but if you can’t make it today, you can still stop by the market some other time. They’re open every Saturday from 9am – 3pm through November 15th, on New Lots Ave and Schenck.
