My love note:

Oh Greensgrow…I was so very excited when you came to town. A little bit of farmland in the middle of this part of the city…And you know what? Every year you just keep getting better, first with the garden center, then the chickens, then Milkshake (the pig)…and the amazing CSA/Farmer’s Market you put together every week! Le sigh…

    I agree with you that Greensgrow is wonderful and it does keep getting better every year. One small thing, it’s in Kensington, not Fishtown. I say this as a proud native of Kensington.it has seen tough times but with the help of new and old neighbors it’s coming back.
