Since 1976, Stokes Farm has been providing New Yorkers with home-grown produce at the Union Square Greenmarket. As one of the original 12 farmers in the Greenmarket system, we have acquired a dedicated following of weekly customers. At the first market in 1976, we sold firewood and cut flowers. Today, we sell geraniums, fresh cut herbs and a large, diverse line of Jersey Fresh produce at the Union Square, Tucker Square, and Tribeca markets.
We sell our produce to many restaurants and eateries in NYC. We have a complete list of all of the restaurants where you can enjoy fresh & seasonal Stokes Farm produce!
