Farmers Markets in Crown Heights: Today at Hamilton Metz Field, Tomorrow at Brower Park (and Saturday on Dean Street)

From the folks at Seeds in the Middle, who've worked tirelessly through permit confusion, electricity challenges, and a whole host of other hurdles to get the Brower Park Market off the ground starting this Friday. They could still use a little help with respect to the electricity (see below), but the market will go on:

Come to the market and welcome back RH Farms and Jamerican Farms and all vendors at Hamilton Metz Park.
