Standing-Room Only At CB Meeting, Hell's Kitchen Neighbors Rally Support.  No 'food desert' for us, all agreed.  The Jan. 16th meeting at Cameo's Studios on W.43rd St., overflowed with support to keep Stile's as the community's reliable produce resource.  All were in favor of a Stile's Farmers Market relocation to the Port Authority space. Neighbors and shoppers, some who came from far away, stood up to speak to the room. Steve Stiles, the man of the hour, spoke, and was very moved by the warm reception.  Tributes were paid to his long-term commitment to the Hell's Kitchen community. He says: "We feed the neighborhood".   The Community Board #4's Health and Housing committee is supporting this measure.  They are joined by neighborhood associations and organizations.   Your elected officials: Assemblyman Richard Gottfried, Senator Brad Hoylman and Councilman Corey Johnson offer their support.

The vacant Project Find space (above) can be a NEW HOME for the Stile's Farmers' Market:    

A Message to the Community from The Stile's Farmer's Market:   

We reflect on the many years of serving the community and our loyal customers. There are countless times we have made donations in the Hell's Kitchen area feeding the homeless, local churches, seniors, and during 9/11. We hope that the Port Authority will embrace our efforts to continue doing business selling quality foods at low cost.  We still need to get the word out to the community, so we are continuing to hand out flyers.  Thank You for all your help in trying to get a new space.

  

Sincerely,

 

The Stile Family
