Union Square Greenmarket Tour

Date: Friday, June 29
Time: 3pm-6pm
Location: Union Square Greenmarket

Greenmarket Professional Tour meets at the Market Manager’s Station and starts with a brief introduction to this world-renowned farmers market system before embarking on a guided walking tour of the market. Beginning with an historical overview of Greenmarket from its founding in 1976 to the present day, the group will learn how the market operates and how it has changed the fabric of NYC neighborhoods. As the group explores the market, you will learn about the Greenmarket mission, our farmers, and how Greenmarket works to improve urban access to fresh, locally grown food. Groups may request specific topics to be addressed, such as market operations, urban and rural connections, food access, regional agriculture, etc. Throughout the tour, the group will have the opportunity to engage in Q&A with farmers in the market. We will also have a food sample of something, but it will only be a few bites.

The tour is about 45-55 minutes.

For those interested, following up the walking tour with a pay your own way dinner at nearby vegan restaurant PeaceFood at 41 east 11th street @ university place.

Working Globally

Globalization continues to impact our work environments, even if you haven’t worked in another country. Lessons learned from the international experience can be valuable advice, regardless of where you work.

Panelists (SLA members from the USA and Europe) affiliated with prestigious international organizations and multi-national legal and business corporations will talk about their global roles in international librarianship, business, law and knowledge management. Experiences include working in a different country, language requirements, cultural sensitivity with diverse clients, technology solutions, time zone challenges, and managing and training global teams.

Free program co-hosted by SLA NY Global Outreach and Professional Development Committees. For more information about the event, check out this flyer.
