The Battery Fair  celebrated the long-awaited opening of the Battery Oval: 87,000 square feet of Kentucky bluegrass, surrounded by 38 trees. (The sod on the magnificent lawn was laid in 2015, but needed a year to take root.) The Oval was equipped with 300 new chairs, shaped like flowers.

This Fair was a  two-day marketplace that featured more than 90 artisinal vendors, selling organic products (such as fish, flowers, fruits and vegetables, grain, herbs, and meat), many of them locally sourced, and all of them small-batch purveyors who are defining alternative, sustainable systems of natural production without compromising taste and beauty.
The vision behind the Fair is ( Warrie Price, pictured) to showcase innovations in agriculture, horticulture, food, and craft; to emphasize the connections between food production and plant production; and to support and connect small batch entrepreneurs in the Northeast region.
