If you’re getting tired of fighting the Saturday crowds at the Bay Ridge Greenmarket, Lutheran Medical Center’s Farmers Market starts tomorrow in nearby Sunset Park.

With its location on 55th Street between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue, the market will be open for business every Thursday until November 15.

For more information, as well as a list of products for sale, please visit their website.
