Producer Rebecca Lynn has mobilized The Mobile Mondays Crew + Friends for this all-ages event celebrating “everything New York” as told in song, in the styles of Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, House, Disco, Latin, and more. Produced in partnership with Hudson Yards Hell’s Kitchen Alliance Business Improvement District (HYHK), Vinyl Nights takes place at Bella Abzug Park at Hudson Yards (Hudson Blvd East btw.

The Down to Earth Farmers Market Chelsea: Every Saturday, 9am-2pm on the North side of West 23rd St., off Ninth Ave. | New York area growers and artisan food makers make the trip to Chelsea every Saturday through Dec. 17. This Market was created with the support of nearby Church of the Holy Apostles, with the mission of bringing wholesome and delicious foods to the neighborhood’s shoppers and supporting local small farms and food businesses. “The Chelsea Farmers Market is a grower-producer market,” its founders note, “meaning that vendors must be farmers or make food with ingredients purchased from local farms. The few exceptions to this rule are olive oil, chocolate and coffee vendors who can document their sourcing.  The Market’s ninth season offers fruits, vegetables, and meats from area farms. Market favorites Pickle Licious and Orwashers Bakery are back and going strong, along with fresh faces including Ideal Fish from Waterbury, CT. SNAP EBT is welcome (visit the manager’s tent to get tokens; matching Health Bucks are available). Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks, issued by WIC offices and Seniors’ centers, can be used from June through November. As for what’s in store at this week’s September 17 Market, Down to Earth’s Melissa noted, in this week’s e-newsletter, that your shopping experience on any given Saturday will afford you the opportunity to discover “unusual fruits and vegetables you may not have encountered or considered bringing home with you before,” during a routine trip to your local supermarket. Those uncommon choices, at Farmers Market Chelsea include celeriac (a relative of parsley, celery, and parsnips) and Kohlrabi (a cabbage).  Get the latest Market news by signing up for their email newsletter via the Down to Earth Markets website (click here to access it) or by following https://www.facebook.com/dtechelseafarmersmarket/.
