Green Market bike tours
'Work up an appetite as we bike the Saturday Brooklyn Greenmarkets and eat Fall's bounty. The tour begins at the Greenpoint Rooftop Farm, where farmer Annie Novak will give us a tour of this stunning 6,000 sq foot farm sitting atop a warehouse in industrial Brooklyn. Afterward, well head to the McCarren Park market for coffee, breakfast and bike tune-ups (provided by NYC Bikes) before riding to the Brooklyn Borough Hall market for some cider pressing and cider doughnut eating. Next well go to the Ft. Greene market for a worm bin composting demonstration by the Ft. Greene Compost Project folks. We'll end our insider's tour at Brooklyn's largest Greenmarket, Grand Army Plaza, with a cooking demonstration hosted by Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo and market-inspired lunch in the park with a couple of Greenmarket farmers.'
