The GrowNYC Youthmarket located at the corner of 48th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard will be up and running for the season starting this Saturday.
The market, run by teenagers, will be open every Saturday through Nov. 22, from 10 am to 2 pm. The market will offer the same fruits and vegetables found at most of the 50 GrowNYC markets across the city.
This will be the second year that the Youthmarket has operated at this location. The Long Island City YMCA is in charge of hiring local teenagers to run the farm stand.
GrowNYC had operated a standard greenmarket at this location until 2010, before it closed due to poor sales. Last year, GrowNYC launched a Youthmarket.
