Small scale farms and local food makers are back in Cunningham Park, Queens for the 2020 season. Every Sunday from 9am to 2pm, shop for local fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, maple syrup, breads and baked goods, seafood, pickles and more! Plus estate grown Colombian coffee, organic, Kosher California olive oil, local spirits and small batch ice pops. NEW! Use the WhatsGood Marketplace app to pre-order directly from vendors then zip through the farmers market to pick up your pre-paid, pre-packed orders.
The farmers market is located in the parking lot near the tennis courts off Union Turnpike.
SNAP EBT accepted, Health Bucks available. Farmers Market Nutrition Program WIC and Seniors checks can be used at the farm stands from June through November.
Here are some guidelines to shopping the farmers market:
-Please wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth.
-Leave 6 feet of space between yourself and the person in front of you if you find yourself in a line (that's about two arm lengths).
-Send just one person to the farmers market to shop.
-Take social conversations with friends and neighbors outside the market area (but continue to follow the social distancing rules!).
-Ask for the product you want to purchase and the salesperson will gather it together for you at the register (vegetables too). Do not touch or lean over displays.
-Vendors have been asked to pre-package everything they possibly can. This minimizes food exposure and maximizes grab-and-go purchasing.
-There will be no food sampling or cooking in the market. Please support vendors who you usually buy ready-to-eat food from by purchasing some of their packaged products.
-Keep bikes and dogs outside the market area.
-If you have pre-ordered bring your order summary with you to speed pick up.
