The Forest Hills Greenmarket will now remain open year round after residents from the community had petitioned to prevent it from closing for the winter.

The market, which sets up each Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the south side of Queens Boulevard at 70th Avenue, had previously closed toward the end of each year.

But GrowNYC, which operates the city’s greenmarkets, announced last weekend via Twitter that Forest Hills’ market would remain open year-round.

“It’s official – we’re going year-round at Forest Hills,” GrowNYC tweeted on Saturday. “Thanks so much for your support and please spread the word about this great market.”

GrowNYC could not immediately be reached for comment about the announcement, so it was unclear whether all of the vendors would remain at the market through the winter.

Currently, the greenmarket has 18 vendors that sell vegetables, honey, artisan breads, pork, lamb, poultry, turkey, wine, dairy and baked goods, lavender, seafood, fruit, milk and butter.
