We spoke with June Russell, the Manager of Farm Inspections at Greenmarket/GrowNYC, about the impact on Greenmarkets after Hurricane Sandy. Market Managers are still in the process of assessing damage to their farmers but most have sustained some damage and lost multiple market day revenues. Greenmarkets are beginning to re-open across the city today so please come out to support these farmers.
“Most [farmers] sound like they have sustained some damage but not catastrophic… we want to get our markets back up and running and our farmers back in.”
