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.
