The seasonal Farmers Markets / Green Markets in Queens will begin soon. The Jackson Heights, Forest Hills and Sunnyside farmers markets are now open year 'round.

How To Shop Queens Farmers Markets & Green Markets

There are two shopping strategies. One is to go early for best selection, and the other is to go late to get the best prices. Naturally in the beginning of the day farmers have their entire inventory to show you, while late in the day, they may be open to reasonable requests for discounts so that they have less to carry back to the farm.
