Farm Up Jamaica Partners Up with Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival NY

Farm Up Jamaica Caribbean Farmers Market at the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival Queens NY Come and “Shop Fi A Cause”

New York – On the heels of a successful farmers market debut at the Washington D.C. Grace Jamaican jerk festival, Farm Up Jamaica, a non-profit organization, will continue its mission to raise funds to reduce the amount of import foods into Jamaica, while creating employment opportunities in agriculture for young Jamaicans who need most.

This time it will be held in the New York tri-state area, at the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival at Roy Wilkins park on Sunday July 22, 2018.

Farm Up has partnered with the Grace Jamaican Jerk festival who understands that Caribbean people need to feel a sense of “home away from home” every so often. The partnership promises to bring the most comprehensive Caribbean culinary experience in the world.

Augmenting produce to the roster of cuisine and allowing the chefs and attendees access to authentic Caribbean produce, herbs & spices, will make the Jerk Fest the only place to be on Sunday June 22nd.

“Tasting the best Caribbean flavors at an event is one thing, having access to the raw ingredients to re-create the experience at home is another,” says Dr. Julius Garvey, son of the late Marcus Garvey and Director of Strategic Research And Development for Farm Up Jamaica Ltd.

Caribbean people will be able to purchase some of the most longed for fruits, vegetables and herbs while supporting a patriotic endeavor to help the Jamaican economy and its people to recover. One way is by teaching them how to fish instead of continually giving them the fish.

Patrons can get ready to enjoy products like: Soursop, Jackfruit, Pumpkin, Yellow Yam, Lucea Yam, Negro Yam, Jamaican bananas, Jamaican pineapple, Jamaican Breadfruit, Callaloo, Guinep, Sugarcane, Coconut, Ginger, Turmeric, Bammy, Scotch Bonnet Pepper and much more.

Farm Up will be located immediately after you enter the gate. Support from patrons is recognized as a contribution to the recovery of a nation so folks are encouraged to bring their shopping bags and prepare to help Jamaica by purchasing their favorite produce or simply making a donation. Cash, Credit and Debit cards will be excepted. They will also have a bag check for people who don’t want to walk around with heavy bags.

This is an extraordinary opportunity of food and fun and live entertainment at the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival Roy Wilkins Park Queens NY, Sunday July 22, 2018.
