During this time, some of us are more concerned with our health now more than ever. In the Roosevelt Island area, we’re lucky that it’s very easy to stay healthy – near our Octagon apartments, there are tons of farmers’ markets where you can get fresh, local produce, bread, meats and other goods.

Despite the pandemic, many of these farmers’ markets are still in operation, serving the community by providing fare that’s unique to our region. If your fridge is looking a little bare but you know what can be found at the supermarket just won’t cut it, check out these nearby farmers’ markets.
