I've come to realize that we have more Farmers Markets in Brooklyn than we think, a lot more, actually. This Weekville Farmers Market is one of those markets we never knew existed until a week ago.
Located on a historic Weeksville, named after James Weeks, a black freedman from Virginia who bought property around 1838 near where other freed blacks had been settling since the turn of the 19th century.
Smack in the middle of our beautiful Bed-Stuy and none of our neighbors knew we had a farmers market there? Oh, it took us not one second to invite them to our Aug 22nd event, theCOMPOUNDbrooklyn + bk framyards to bring out their tasty and super affordable veggies and their infos.
Can't wait till the 22nd? The market is open on Sat. and Sun until November @ Bergen Street between Buffalo and Rochester Avenues.
