Fall Flavors at Park Slope's Farmers Market

Over 50 markets have opened citywide since Greenmarket was founded in 1976. In 1991, Miriam Haas founded Community Markets with a similar goal of bringing local, seasonal food to neighborhoods with limited access. Since doing so, a total of almost 20 markets have opened in the boroughs and surrounding counties. Park Slope's vibrant Fifth Avenue received its first market in 2004. Spreading west down the dead end stretch of Fourth Street, the market is open Sundays, 10am - 4pm, year round.

Cauliflower and kabocha squash are a small percentage of the inventory on offer from Alex's Tomato Farm.

This Sunday was the last chance to stock up on cranberries from Breezy Hill Orchard before resorting to the ill-fated can of jellied cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving.

Some of fall's greatest contributions.

Beautiful bosc pears from Migliorelli Farm in Tivoli, New York.

The early morning crowd gathers quickly at 4th Street and Fifth Avenue.

Thank you for this great write-up of the Park Slope Farmers Market. We love operating it. One note: It is now year around! It will be held all winter in the same outdoor location from 10 am to 4 pm. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Thank you again - fantastic photos, too.
