Nepali and Tibetan Immigrants Thrive in the Union Square Greenmarket
The Greenmarket was founded in 1976 to promote locally grown products directly to New York consumers hungry for fresh, high quality produce. Four days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) there are dozens of stalls selling a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and baked goods.
About five percent of the salespeople are Nepali and Tibetan and the number is rising because of a tight-knit community network and mouth-to-mouth publicity.
