The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Farmer's Market at Caton Market

For those who've been craving the farmer's market experience (FME), a humble FME can be had at the corner of Caton and Flatbush every Wednesday from 8am - 4pm (ignore the dates/times on the Flatbush-Caton Market website). It's sponsored by the Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce.

Please do stop by it and share your comments. Perhaps if it becomes popular enough they'll add more vendors!

For those who know what a market is, but are not quite sure about the farmer part, here's a picture of a typical farmers-market farmer to give you a sense of the man behind the melons:

Love that little booth. This is my 3rd summer in the nabe and I look forward getting my locally grown veggies close to home rather than having to walk to GAP. To my excitement they have had eggs this year, which they didn't previously. Please support them by shopping there.
