Last Crown Heights Farmers Market of the Season Today from 1-7pm at Hamilton-Metz Park

From the folks at Seeds in the Middle:

Come to the Crown Heights Farmers Market today, Thursday, 1 pm to 7 pm, for our last market of the 2012 season!
Like many in the region, Hurricane Sandy heavily impacted our farmers. But we are happy to welcome back RH Farms and their beautiful bounty.  

Where: Albany/Lefferts Aves. at Hamilton Metz Park 

Did you see the new garden at Hamilton Metz Park?

If you haven't caught sight of the beautiful trees and plants, take a look in Hamilton Metz Park at the  children's garden, planted with the family of Farmer Roy Hildebrant - in his memory and in the memory of all who died too young. We trust it survived all the storms!

Thank you, Kaboom and Home Depot and NYC Parks for the soil, plants and supplies.  

Roy's wife, Michelle Hildebrant and their six children and friends joined PS 221 Hip2B Healthy students to plant a new garden at Hamilton Metz Park, Albany/Lefferts Avenues, right next to the field. More photos to come.

Farmer Roy Hildebrant was our first farmer, and co-founder of the Crown Heights Farmers Market. See his obit here.

Thank you to all who have supported us!
