At the intersection of the world in Flushing, Queens, Community Markets is bringing food from ‘round these parts. On Friday, June 22nd, Community Markets will start the 10th season of the Queens Botanical Garden Farmers Market. The market will take place every Friday, from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm, through November 16th, 2012, on the sidewalk of Dahlia Avenue at the corner of Main Street in Flushing. Throughout the season, shoppers can buy directly from farmers and food producers, who are all “local”, meaning they travel “to market and back in a day.” Community Markets invites all the cooks (and eaters!) of Queens to shop the market and interpret local produce through their world-traveled recipes. Using social media, Community Markets will post shopper photos and recipes that explore the market’s ingredients through a global cultural lens.
