The farmer's market launching this month at Jackie Robinson Park in Bed Stuy (which we wrote about here) launched last weekend and blogger Ultraclay was on the scene as a volunteer. Here's his report:
My initial fears of just about anything done in the neighborhood is that it'll be half-assed. I've seen it over and over, people have big ideas but nothing to back it up. But my worries were unfounded. While a little disorganized, the market brought a great turnout of volunteers and what I hope is just the beginning of neighborhood denizens taking advantage of the only farm fresh fruits and vegetables on offer for miles.
