Sunnyside will start off green this summer.

Queens County Market will come to Sunnyside Greenmarket later this month to celebrate the beginning of the summer season with food and fun.

On June 28, Queens County Market vendors and local restaurants will join GrowNYC‘s Greenmarket farmers at the Sunnyside Greenmarket for “Sunnyside Up!,” a free food and farm festival.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., people will be able to come to Skillman Avenue by 42 and 43 streets and taste different prepared foods and drinks. The event will also include live music and activities such as face painting, balloon art, and “bike blenders,” which are bikes used to power blenders to make homemade smoothies and drinks.

Although the Sunnyside Greenmarket has been operating since 1976, this is the second year that an event like “Sunnyside Up!” has been held.

“This is the first time that prepared food will be offered at the farmer’s market.” said Caroline Hiteshew, Greenmarket’s publicity and volunteer coordinator. “Guests can expect fish and other prepared items from the vendors, and there will also be a crepe station that will be serving both sweet and savory crepes along with iced coffees.”

Other vendors and farmers at the event include Ballards Honey, Breezy Hill Orchards, King Ferry Winery and local restaurant Venturo Osteria serving eggplant crostinis, and a mixed berry and whipped mascarpone dessert.
