Visit a Green Market


Things are heating up in NYC. That may mean your list of things to do with the kids is down to the bottom. No fear! We've got ideas.

Don't forget a weekly trip to your local green market. Bring along a few reusable totes and head to the stalls. Here is a list of Greenmarkets in NYC. Bring a camera. I snapped this shot of a man wearing a hat and a cat at the Union Square Green Market last week!

If you get inspired, you can try to get your kids' schools in on the action. Greenmarket can either bring a farmer to your child's classroom or help organize an outing to a local green market. How cool is that?
