Temporary Relocation During Helix Repairs

Saturday Farmers Market Is Moving, Starting February 17th

Updated 48 weeks ago

RIOC announced late Friday that the Saturday Farmers Market will relocate to Good Shepherd Plaza, starting next week, February 17th and continuing through the duration of Helix repairs. The move, first suggested here, should help businesses in the Main Street canyon by increasing foot traffic. 

Repairs to the Helix carrying traffic to and from the Roosevelt Island Bridge are expected to take four months and will limit auto traffic. First day is February 15th.

The Farmers Market is not truly a "farmers market," as it predominantly sells non-locally grown produce. All benefits go to the PS/IS 217 Parent Teacher Association by way of a contested, non-competitive agreement with RIOC.
