Whether you're looking for Jersey tomatoes, apples from upstate New York, or fresh fish caught off Long Island, you'll find it at the Union Square Greenmarket, the center of New York's regional food scene. And chances are the person selling you the food is an immigrant.

Alfred Portale, Executive Chef & Partner of Gotham Bar & Grill, and Tim Stark, of Eckerton Hill Farms, discusses “Greenmarket to Gotham.” All summer, Gotham has featured a different farmer each week and (almost) exclusively uses their produce for a two-course, vegetarian lunch menu (for $25). The series is also a fundraiser for Grow NYC's program "Grow to Learn" that helps schools plan, implement and manage their school gardens. Tim Stark's farms, in Pennsylvania, are famous for their tomatoes and chiles; he’s also the author of Heirloom: Notes from an Accidental Tomato Farmer.
