Year Round Farmers Markets in NYC

What a mess outside -- a foot of snow, slushy streets, gigantic puddles. And, not a lot of fresh, local food to be found today as I suspect a lot of the farmers who sell on Fridays at Unions Square Farmers Market stayed close to the farm.

Which got me thinking about how hard it is to be a locavore in the northeast in February, March and April.

Here's a list of markets that are open all year to help you get through winter and early spring until your CSA starts or neighborhood farmers market opens for the season.

• 77th Street - Sunday
• 97th St - Friday
