49 Van Buren
At the Sunday market, community residents are able to purchase locally grown food, learn about food justice, growing food and herbs and how to prepare healthy food . The new farm/market which sits on an old brownfield that existed in the community for over two decades was revitalized by V.P Hattie Carthan garden /urban farmer Yonnette Fleming and community residents . The new farm/market is an offspring of the Hattie Carthan community garden/market and represents a community's effort to reclaim its agricultural heritage, educate and empower youth through the creation of value added products from local crops, reduce the carbon footprint of foods sold in our markets and contribute to the overall cultural, social and economic vitality of Central Brooklyn .
If you've shopped at Hattie Carthan , tell us what you think of the market.
