After celebrating its 30th year in business, The GreenFlee market–located on the 77th St. of the Upper West Side of Manhattan–continues to strive to please their neighborhood and consumers. Motivated by funding the local public schools of Manhattan, management levels remain enthusiastic about this type of venue.
Vendor hours: 8:15 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Market hours: 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Fortunately, a journalistic interview with the Executive Director, Juli Ra shows positive results. Concluding several questions, this establishment plans on being around in the future to provide adequate spaces for vendors to supply the market that ‘has a large variety of antique, vintage, and artisan products’. This is what she said:

This honorable type of endeavor demonstrates extreme dedication to cooperating with the local Manhattan school district to assist with funding their Computer School (PS 87) and Anderson Program (PS 334). In relation, computers are a part of the future. Popularly known by many, the GreenFlea venture has accumulated over $7,000,000 for the local public school project (i.e., Parents Association). Hats off and kudos to the Executive Director Juli Ra for efforts in communicating to the community while enjoying the weather changes.
