Join Michael Hurwitz, Director of GrowNYC‘s Greenmarkets program, for a walking tour of the Union Square Greenmarket. Learn about how the city’s growing system of Greenmarkets impacts the resilience of both the city and the agricultural communities throughout the region. Chat with vendors, taste some samples, and get an inside perspective on how markets like the one at Union Square—ephemeral by nature—can have a marked and lasting impact on the physical environment in the neighborhoods where they locate.

The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York is a year-long series of public programs, organized by Open House New York as part of its ongoing Urban Systems Series. The Final Mile is intended to shed light on New York City’s dynamic and multi-layered food economy while introducing and exploring approaches to render this invisible system more tangible.

The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York is made possible with generous support from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
