It started out with Union Square the movie. Now, the movie Can a Song Save Your Life? it rumored to be filming with stars Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo in Union Square today.

We were so busy dancing about at Summer in the Square that we forgot how quickly Harvest in the Square was creeping up. Tickets went on sale on Sunday and we’ve already seen a tremendous response. Harvest is the original local food and wine event – dating back to 1995 before you even knew the words “locavore” and “foodie.” Yep, we are that ahead of our time. Harvest is also the one and only fundraiser for Union Square Park. All those blog posts about our crew cleaning and planting around the park are paid for with proceeds from this fantastic one-night event. And what a night it is! Meet the chefs from the hottest and most popular restaurants in the nabe and enjoy their signature dishes made from fresh farm produce from our very own Union Square Greenmarket. Book now, these tickets won’t be around long.
In midst of the hustle and bustle of Union Square, the scent of lavender can be found in the Greenmarket at the “Lavender by the Bay” stand. The company has lavender in all forms: fresh, dry, and even some that is tea brewing ready. So visit the Greenmarket on Monday and Fridays and take a bundle or a bag home so that the fresh outdoors is just a whiff or a sip away!
