Join us on the Kennedy Plaza for one of Long Island’s favorite outdoor Farmers’ Markets. Our Opening Day will kick off with Long Island Food Vendors, kids crafts, and Live Music! Join LI Greenmarket in the city of Long Beach for the start of a wonderful Summer season and new Farmers Market on the South Shore of Long Island. Market is open at 9am to 2pm.
The existing fountain is too big and it leaks. I guess visually, a large fountain makes a grand statement, but I think a small round fountain would be better. Like a meeting place where we can sit around, drink coffee and discuss philosophy. Perhaps with a statue of the mermaid, neptune and tower from our city seal? What a vague post. Whatever…. I like to dream. Here is a terrible photoshop. Can somebody please make this happen?
City of Long Beach residents and visitors will welcome back the Farmers Market at Kennedy Plaza on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 from 9am to 1pm.
For six years the popular market, which runs Wednesdays and Saturdays through November, has featured regional producers offering fresh products including vegetables, herbs, fruits, plants, baked goods, fish, shellfish, eggs, cheeses, pasta, pickles, fair trade coffee, gluten free products, handcrafted soaps, poultry, pork and much more. This year the market will introduce new producers offering yogurt, nut butters, organic herb and vegetable plants.
“We are very happy to be back in Long Beach,” said Market Manager and Program Director Bernadette Martin. “We have lots of new products to offer, and residents whose gardens were damaged by Hurricane Sandy will have a wide selection of plants, including flats and hanging baskets, for the spring planting season.”
Be sure to visit the Kennedy Plaza Farmers Market at 1 West Chester Street in Long Beach from May 3rd through November, Wednesdays 10am-4pm, Saturdays 9am-1pm
The Kennedy Plaza Farmers Market opens today @ 10am. Here is this year’s schedule:

Actually, I don’t know if the pickle guy is there both Wednesdays and Saturdays, so if he isn’t there today, don’t get mad at me.
The Kennedy Plaza Farmer’s Market is back this Wednesday, December 14th. I got a confirmation from Bernadette, the market manager and she added that they might actually be outside if the weather is decent.
So whether inside City Hall or out at Kennedy Plaza, don’t forget that the hours have changed:
