Every Saturday, Summer through Fall, and weather permitting, check out the Marcus Garvey Park Farmers Market! Fresh produce, artisanal products, flowers and always a surprise. They are located on the extended sidewalk plaza along the perimeter of Marcus Garvey Park on the corner of Mount Morris Park West and 124th Street. 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.
Have you noticed the new plants and shrubs along the Madison Avenue side of Marcus Garvey Park? The Marcus Garvey Park Alliance recently formed a community residents gardening group, with corporate sponsors – also from our community. It’s a way to bring neighbors together, and fill the otherwise empty garden areas on the sidewalks along our park. It takes a Village, so if you’re interested, contact the Alliance. Every effort huge, no job too small. If you’re a local business and wish to participate, no amount too small.
You can also follow the Garden on the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance Facebook page.
The Public Art Initiative (part of The Marcus Garvey Park Alliance) in collaboration with Hunter East Harlem Gallery/Jason Lazarus, the Uptown Triennial – Columbia University’s Wallach Art Gallery, now has the Uptown Artist Portrait Facebook Page up and running. Here’s the Link. Stay tuned for The Public Art Initiative at White Park, East Harlem.
