September 26, 2015: Greenmarkets 2

Another beautiful day and record-breaking attendance!

Greenmarket walks are some of our favorites, and this was especially fun because we partnered with Chenchita’s Community Garden to host a special day of events for our families.

We rewarded the children who brought their reusable water bottles with stickers and got started with our lesson. We reviewed the essentials of good eating: not too much, avoid added sugar and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Greenmarkets are a great place to stock up on produce, especially when we have Health Bucks to spend!

After a stop along the Harlem Meer to eat our apples and bananas we headed to Chenchita’s to enjoy the festivities. Angela and the Chenchita’s crew had arranged a personalized farmer’s market selection of produce for us, along with lots of fun things for kids and adults. There was a cooking demonstration, face painting, rubber band art, knitting, story telling with books to give away, and we even grilled up some of the corn we bought.

We signed up for membership at Chenchita’s so we’re looking forward to plenty more garden events.

Another great walk!

  1. […] We were especially pleased to partner with Chenchita’s Garden for one of farmers market walks this year. Along with using Health Bucks to buy a variety of produce, we had a cooking demonstration and tour of the foods grown in the garden itself. Plus, Chenchita’s offers a lot for visitors of all ages: gardening, face painting, story time with free book giveaway, knitting and more. Perhaps the best enjoyed part of the day was roasting some of the corn we bought right there in the garden. You can see the fun here. […]
