Lettuce Rejoice: Billy’s Gets a Farm Stand, Brooklyn Grange Opens

A couple of farm stands just sprouted up: First, the inimitable Billy Leroy, fresh off his brush with the law and his brush with Keith McNally, is diversifying. Now, in addition to scoring taxidermied coyotes and dioramas of hell at his sidewalk antiques shed, you can buy corn, zucchini, squash, eggplant, berries, and flowers from a Lawrenceville, New Jersey, farm (every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, says Bowery Boogie). Meanwhile, over in Long Island City, Brooklyn Grange (New York’s largest rooftop farm) is finally on its feet and selling produce on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 7 p.m. (and also at Roberta’s on Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Check out the June harvest at the farm’s website, and see it in all of its glory at NY1.
