       Yea, City Seed!
Cityseed Farmers Market continues in Wooster Square's Russo Park. Fall produce is great! There are now weekly markets throughout the City, but ours is still held there every Saturday, except in winter when it moves to the nearby Metropolitan Business Academy on Water St. It is a major neighborhood asset.  Go City Seed!!!!
