Morning Eye Candy
The Greenmarket is back today for the start of the 2016 season with strawberries, kale, zucchini, garlic, shell peas, cider, fresh-baked pies, and much more! Look for it each Wednesday, 9 a.m.–3 p.m., from now through November—right near our Mosholu Gate. You can’t miss the vendor tents, and you certainly can’t miss their colorful selections.
Don’t forget your reusable bags if you’ve got ’em!

At the heart of the Rose Garden, the pergola is the broach that brings the ensemble together. The collection, designed by Beatrix Farrand in 1916, still carries late spring on its shoulders.
