Yet again, there’s a new green market in Brooklyn. And this time, it’s right outside of the Brooklyn Museum at Eastern Parkway. Stock up on your local leafy greens now, because it’s opening tomorrow afternoon in conjunction with Project EATS and the museum’s upcoming, Brooklyn-focused fall exhibit, Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond.

Project EATS, which aims to create community farms and markets in working-class neighborhoods, will provide produce from their four New York City farms including two in Brooklyn, in East New York and Brownsville. Eventually, produce will also be available from the gardens that will be planted on the actual museum grounds.

Crossing Brooklyn, a showcase of 35 Brooklyn-based artists and their contributions to the borough’s creative history, doesn’t open until October 3rd, but the green market will be open every Thursday through the fall from 3:30pm to 9pm.
