WHAT'S COOKING: Shopping for July 4th Smoothie Ingredients!

Shopping for Smoothies has never been easier in New York City.  There are many local farmers markets, which are a great place to get quality fresh produce that is flavorful and healthy.

Also read about health benefits of berries and the recipes for the smoothies we made!


One such market is the Columbia Greenmarket, located on Broadway between 114th & 116th Streets.  This market is open on Sundays and Thursdays and would be an ideal place to pick up the fruit and berries you need to make these smoothies.  Go to the Greenmarket website for more information and to find the farmers’ market closest to you.  If you are on the upper west side, you can also check out MyUpperWest for more information on nearby green markets.

Today we shopped at Fairway for our 4th of July Smoothies.  Fairway offers a vast selection of produce, yogurts, milk, honey and spices.   Click here to find Fairway on a map and for more information about hours and alternate locations.

What’s Cooking Tip: Fairway and the Farmers Markets both accept EBT cards – so go ahead and use your SNAP benefits on healthy, vitamin- rich produce!
