Thursday and Saturdays 8am - 5pm

Greenmarket's gateway to the Upper West Side, the Richard Tucker Park Greenmarket, offers locally grown produce just across the street from Lincoln Center. Seasonal vegetables range from fresh staples like corn and greens to Mexican specialties like papalo and epazote. Orchards boast sweet berries, stone fruit, and over 80 varieties of apples. Knowledgeable growers are at market to explain just how to care for their plants, flowers, and herb pots indoors and out. Impeccable farmstead cheeses, fresh seafood, grass fed beef, duck and duck charcuterie, eggs, artisanal baked goods, and New York’s only producer of both sorghum and maple syrup round out the offerings.

The greenmarket is open every Thursday and Saturday throughout the year.

Check Library for times

On a winter evening in 1943, in a former Masonic Temple on West 55th Street that had been scheduled for demolition, a concert was held whose reverberations are still being felt 75 years later. That night, New York City Center was born. As the first performing arts center in Manhattan, the fledgling institution broke new ground by presenting dance, music, theater, and opera under the same roof. This multi-use approach to performing arts venues set the mold for the presentation of the arts around the country in the second half of the 20th century. Through constant innovations, City Center continues to be a performing arts leader in the 21st century. For the first time ever, a striking new exhibition will tell the story of “The People’s Theater” through a wide range of material including photographs, costumes, props, theater seats, posters, mosaic tiles, and other ephemera that provide a fresh perspective on City Center’s first 75 years.

Every December, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis brings this Grammy Award–winning holiday extravaganza to Rose Theater for a series of sold-out shows. With soulful big band arrangements of songs both sacred and secular, Big Band Holidays is an uplifting tradition enjoyed by audiences of all ages and backgrounds. In addition to some swinging JLCO instrumentals, special guest vocalists join the band each season for imaginative new versions of classics like “White Christmas” and “Merry Christmas, Baby.” Recent Big Band Holidays programs have featured such acclaimed vocalists as Cécile McLorin Salvant, Gregory Porter, René Marie, and Catherine Russell, and this year the JLCO welcomes two standout rising stars to join this tradition: Vuyo Sotashe and Veronica Swift. Join them in the House of Swing for some yuletide cheer sure to brighten up your season. The matinee show on Sunday, December 23 will be a Relaxed Performance. Relaxed Performances are designed to provide an opportunity for children or adults with autism, learning difficulties, or other sensory and communications needs to enjoy our performances with their families in a more relaxed environment. All audiences are welcome to join us for this performance.
