Go Veggie Crazy at the Brooklyn Museum's Hyper-Local Urban Farm Stand

brooklynmuseumHave your recent trips to the museum been sorely lacking in locally sourced produce from urban farms in Brooklyn? Have you recently walked up to a new exhibition and become suddenly struck by hunger pangs that can only be sated by vegetables grown within a mile from your apartment? Do you at some point each day need to purchase greens from the same person who grew and picked them with their hands in order to carry on with your life?

Well, if that’s the case, isn’t it your lucky day. Starting this Thursday, July 17, Project EATS will be selling roots and tubers outside the Brooklyn Museum to start hyping the show “Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy and Beyond.” The stand will be open through the fall, every Thursday from 3:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.. Foodies who regularly go to the Brooklyn Museum, rejoice!

After conducting some preliminary investigation, it looks like we’re in for some serious stuff here: kale, snap peas, beets, radishes, swiss chards, collards, cucumber, turnips. Man, this is a lot to take in.

This will be an enormous hit, no doubt, but what about a sandwich cart with, you know, meat? Or tacos? Tacos sound really good right now.

“Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond” will be view at the Brooklyn Museum from Oct. 3, 2014 through Jan. 4, 2015.
