Down to Earth Farmers Market opening in Chelsea

A new farmers market named the ‘Down to Earth farmers market,’ is opening this Saturday on West 23rd St & 9th Avenue in Chelsea. This summer market will be set up on the sidewalks and open from 9AM to 5PM until November 22, giving locals a chance to shop for locally sourced food. Nicole Reed, a spokesperson for Down to Earth, states that one of the main goals in opening this market is to increasingly get more people to source from New York agriculture. The Down to Earth group currently has 19 markets in the NY area, and this will be its second location in Manhattan, with its first being the Morningside Park market.

Here are a few vendors that the market will be featuring:

  • Roots to River
  • Alex’s Tomato Farm
  • Locust Grove Fruit Farm
  • Meredith’s Bread
  • Tuthilltown Spirits Farm
  • Dickson’s Farmstand Meats
