Presented in partnership with Hellgate Farm

Hellgate Farm is a network of residential and rooftop gardens in Queens. They staff a market table at the Park every Saturday, May through mid- November, 11 AM – 4 PM, offering fresh cut produce (the majority being harvested that same morning from their micro-local gardens), as well as small batch products such as signature hot sauces, ketchups, and dried herbs. For more info visit hellgatefarm.com.

Throughout the season, other special vendors will be featured on Saturdays including The Connected Chef, who will present “Connecting Through Food” on the second Saturday of every month: May 12, June 9, July 14, and August 11, 12 – 3 PM. During these cold prep food demos, parents will learn to cook with their kids and adults will learn some delicious, easy meals that are great for summertime.
