The summer-long Sheepshead Bay farmer’s market has kicked off its third year, returning to the Ocean Parkway malls in front of Coney Island Hospital (2601 Ocean Parkway).
The market, operated by Harvest Home, began the season last Friday, and, as in years prior, will be there every Friday until November 15. Its hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
There are about a dozen vendors hawking seasonal fruits and vegetables, alongside fresh baked goods. Some of the products sold include basil, broccoli, sweet corn, cucumbers, okra, melons, summer squash, gooseberries and much more.
