Queens Farmers Markets 2021 are Essential Services during CoVid Pandemic

Opening Dates, Hours, Items & How To Shop - 18 Queens Farmers Markets

June 29, 2021 / Food & Wine in Queens / Queens Buzz NYC.

This report contains the opening dates, times / hours, items / selection, as well as links to online maps of all major Queens farmer markets, including address locations in Queens.

Note that only three Queens farmers markets run year round - 1) Jackson Heights, 2) Sunnyside & 3) Forest Hills. Please note that Farmers Markets are considered ESSENTIAL SERVICES and therefore remain open through the CoVid pandemic which began Spring 2020 and continues through Summer of 2021[and beyond, but hopefully by then, the pandemic is really over].

But as of this post 6.29.21 - ONE MARKET CONTINUES TO OPERATE UNDER WINTER HOURS which usually end with April.

The Seasonal Queens farmers markets begin opening in May with the last of them coming online by early / mid July. We'll update throughout the season.

* WATCH DATES. Please note that a couple of the terminated farmers markets in Queens we have kept listed to enable people to verify their closed status. Enjoy shopping and eating the fresh and natural foods and product of our local farmers and food manufacturers.

* YOUTH MARKETS / aka YM. *YM will be Updated as the information becomes available, but the dates from last year should serve as a probable guide as to what to expect this year.

How this Page is Organized

These Queens farmers markets are organized 1) by Queens neighborhood and 2) in alphabetical order.

Please note that the ASTERISKED (*) Queens farmers markets have either NOT been updated for 2021 or not confirmed for 2021.

Most of the seasonal markets open in late June or early July and we updated them as the information became available - but the information from last year is generally a good bet for the dates / times / locations for this year.



This report is about HOW TO SHOP the Queens Farmers Markets / Green Markets in Queens NY including the hours, food selection and maps of the locations of the farmers markets located in Astoria, Long Island City LIC, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights, Corona, Flushing, Jamaica and Glendale.

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.

Greenmarkets / Farmers Markets 2021 - Queens NY

Ten of the fourteen outdoor markets are sponsored by Grow NYC which is run by the City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation and the Council on the Environment of NYC. The Flushing Farmers market and the Jamaica Farmers market are managed and sponsored by an independent company - Down To Earth Markets. The Flushing farmers market is done in collaboration with the Queens Botanical Garden, and the Jamaica Farmers markets [Friday & Saturday] are done in collaboration with the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, a non-profit organization in Jamaica. One of the other farmers markets in Flushing is managed by Queens Community House, a non-profit and open near Queens College. And the last of the farmers market certain to open is operated by Brooklyn Grange, an urban rooftop farm.
