PS11 Farm Market
The PS11 Farm Market has been in operation since June 2008 and operates Wednesday mornings from 8am to 10am in front of PS11, 320 West 21st Street from mid-June through late November.
PS11 is a member of the Chelsea CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and receives fruits and vegetables from Stoneledge Farm, a 90 acre, certified organic farm located in the foothills of the Northern Catskills. Third grade students run the market every Wednesday and learn about local, organic and seasonal produce, how it can be prepared, what it tastes like. They operate the market from June through November, selling the produce to the community at or below market prices. Teaching children and their families about healthy foods and the importance and impact to our environment of supporting local farms are the key components of our project.

Our recent Harvest Week event at the market featured the chef de cuisine of Daniel, Eddy Leroux.
