Get your arts & crafts on

Upperclassmen rejoice: it’s your first Columbia Greenmarket of the year!  (No, stumbling past the tents in a hungover daze on Sunday after your first night back doesn’t count.)  The market is here every Thursday and Sunday on Broadway between 114th and 116th.  Bwog has your highlights:

  • On Sundays, the market collects food scraps for compost from 8 am to 1 pm and textiles for recycling from 8 am to 3 pm
  • This Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm the Mobile Textile Lab will be at Market Info to teach you how to dye textiles using natural ingredients found in the market.  It’s just like arts and crafts!
  • Swing by Market Info at noon today to learn how to cook locally grown edamame from Samascott Orchard–and even grab a free sample
  • Stop by Market Info to pick up a used bag or drop off extras in the ongoing Take A Bag/Leave A Bag Collection
As always, the market accepts credit, debit, and EBT.
