Last summer, this beautifully curated Market situated on the Park, quickly became a Saturday morning gathering place for locals, their kids and pets. In fact ~ the Market had so many four-legged friends that it held a Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest for Pets last year, complete with doggie-bisquit baked treats!
And ~ check out the new & wonderful Amuse Pooch for your Pet!
New to The Market, Tres Leches Cafe’, a family-operated, East Harlem bakery, with Dominican recipe’s passed down through generations. Their cakes include Tres Leches, cheesecake, custard, and custard with coconut.
Homemade, handmade and even delicious samples are on hand. It is sponsored by the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance, who maintains a ‘community table’ with flyers and brochures on Park events, music, movies, and art installations.
The Farmers Market at Marcus Garvey Park, organized by Marcus Garvey Park Alliance, is located on Mount Morris Park West and 124th Street, open from 9:30am to 4:30pm every Saturday this Summer. Follow the Market on Facebook.
