What is your favorite part about operating your business?

Growing the best-tasting produce so people can eat healthy and enjoy what they are eating. We enjoy talking to people and answering questions about the produce.

What are you looking forward to most about the market/movie nights? 

Seeing customers from last year and the new ones coming this year. It's nice to see families come out for a night together and be able to supply them with fresh produce so they can have a great night together (either at the movie or at home) and be able to eat really fresh, great-tasting food.

Will you be offering any special deals at the Old Brooklyn Farmers Market?

We always want to offer fresh fruits that can be eaten at the park during the movie. We'll have more choices each week as the season goes on!
