Greenmarket Goddess Nevia No Is Back on the Circuit


Nevia No, former friendly face of South Jersey’s Yuno’s Farm, indefatigable ambassador of avocado squash and Korean cucumbers, and chefs’ favorite, has been absent from the Greenmarket circuit since last June. Much has happened since then: No and her former partner split up, Yuno’s changed its name to Lani’s, and No rented 70 acres in Burlington County, New Jersey, to launch Bodhitree Farm, what she calls “almost a one-woman show.” The farm made its New York debut last Saturday at Abingdon Square, with hoop-house greens like Tuscan kale, collard greens, tatsoi, and red mizuna, plus fresh farm eggs. And she’s at Union Square right now, damp but happy, with the fruits of her labor — or what she’s started branding as “Veggies with spirit.”
