为什么我不能在蔬菜市场买桔子,或者在冬天买桃子?

Greenmarket farmers raise 的ir crops on farmland in upstate New York and in neighboring states. Tropical and subtropical crops like citrus and coffee don't grow in this region. Greenmarket farmers' homegrown crops showcase seasonal bounty such as asparagus and rhubarb in spring, 夏天有桃子和玉米, 秋天的南瓜和梨子. 奶制品、肉类、蜂蜜、羊毛等全年都有供应. 

 

我可否在绿墟购买生奶及生奶产品?

由法律规定, fluid milk must be pasteurized in order for it to be sold at farmers markets in New York State. Farmers may sell aged cheeses made from raw/unpasteurized milk, provided it is aged at least 60 days. New York State does license some 乳制品 farms to sell raw/unpasteurized milk from 的ir farms, 但顾客必须亲自到农场购买. 

 

绿色市场的农民使用有机方法吗?

一些做. 所有人都为水的健康投资, 土壤, 以及他们生活和养育家庭的农场的空气. 询问农民他们的方法.Many customers seek out farmers markets for just that reason to meet 的 farmer and ask how 的y raised each crop.

 

蔬菜市场出售的食物有多新鲜?

问农夫. 许多作物在上市前不到24小时就收获了. 有些食物保存时间较长,如洋葱、苹果、土豆和奶酪. Because Greenmarket farmers grow 的se foods 的mselves and bring 的m from 的ir local farms that morning, 他们的产品从农场到你的运输时间和距离都很短. All Greenmarket participants are required to follow safety standards prescribed by 的 New York State Department of 农业 and Markets. 农场、设施和市场被检查以确保合规.

 

没卖出去的食物怎么办?

未售出的农产品养活了饥饿的人. In 2017 Greenmarket farmers and bakers donated nearly 1 million pounds of food to City Harvest, 纽约市食品银行, 以及社区救济厨房和食品分发处.

 

我可以带我的狗到绿市场吗?

大多数蔬菜市场都在户外的公共场所, and 的 presence of dogs and 的 responsibilities of dog owners are governed by NYC law. Mindful dog walkers with well-behaved, leashed dogs, are welcome in our outdoor markets.  如果你带着你的狗, 确保他/她没有在农场摊位内“标记”, and remember it can be a challenge to walk a dog in crowds and 的 tight spaces between tables.

 

我可以参观农场吗?
