In case you missed it, here are some highlights from the first lively and successful El Boar-rio Pig Roast, hosted by Urban Garden Center and Flea Marqueta! Local beer, delicious grub, fun-loving East Harlemites and artisan wares attracted a nice turn out on this lovely autumn day.

The event was fun, spirited, and really brought people together. We look forward to seeing East Harlem continue to support these exciting activities that are breathing life into the community!
