Enjoy special event celebrating fresh, local produce and featuring Chef Patti Jackson
New York’s savviest grocery shoppers have long been hip to the Greenmarket. What began with twelve farmers in an empty lot in 1976 has grown into the largest network of its kind in the country, promoting regional agriculture and helping forge a sense of community in many of the city’s neighborhoods. Today, the Greenmarket’s open-air farmers markets ensure a continuing supply of fresh produce for New Yorkers wishing to keep it local.
Now, Greenmarket presents Taste of Greenmarket, an extraordinary event honoring long-serving supporters Christine Quinn, Adrian Benepe and Christopher “Kim” J. Elliman. The event will feature some of New York’s finest chefs from the city’s top restaurants, including Chef Patti Jackson of I Trulli and Centovini.
On October 29, join Master of Ceremonies Kelly Choi, Emmy-nominated host of NYC TV’s Eat Out NY and the Food Network’s Iron Chef America, at Studio 450 for a VIP private tasting followed by a tasting and silent auction of fabulous prizes. Celebrate the honored leaders who make fresh, locally grown produce available to New Yorkers and taste signature dishes from some of the city’s best chefs, using their favorite Greenmarket ingredients.
