The Annual Auction Fundraiser on March 15th provides funding for enrichment programs like art, ballroom dancing, yoga, movement and music. These activities could not exist without your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation or using one of the forms below to solicit donations in your neighborhood. Every dollar raised directly augments the educational experience at 217.
Thank you for your generosity and support of our school.
Roosevelt Island's own GreenMarket takes place every Saturday across from PS/IS217, Motorgate's parking lot, from 8am-3pm. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the PS/IS 217 for enrichment programs.
RI GreenMarket began with just a few farmers in 1996, and has grown over the past 18 years. The vendors reflect the diversity of the Island: our regional farmer from Pennsylvania Dutch country has been here from the beginning, our fishermen and baker hail from Hoboken, NJ and our olive seller comes from Lyndhurst, NJ.
The vendors travel from points far away to sell their products to a devout legion of Roosevelt Islanders (& those coming over the local bridge from Queens) who support local agriculture and who appreciate fair prices.
RI GreenMarket hosts the following year-round producers: Wengerd Farm, Hoboken Farm and Vesco Olives. Others, such as Paolo's Kitchen and Sal's Tag Sale, are with us for three-quarters of the year.
RI GreenMarket features a wide variety of goods - just-picked fresh fruits and vegetables, kielbasa, wild salmon, award-winning farmstead cheeses, artisan breads, cookies, jams, pickles, an array of olives, hot apple cider, maple syrup and much more. Deliciously prepared frozen foods from Paolo's Kitchen can be found most of the year as well.
We hope soon to add a flower and plant vendor to our current roster of vendors.
