NYC Honey Day at the High Line

Date & Time

Last event was Wednesday, July 29, 2015


14th Street Passage, on the High Line at 14th Street

Taste your way through NYC's first artisanal honey market. Friends of The High Line and the Brooklyn Grange Farm invite you to meet beekeepers from all five boroughs at this pop-up gathering of sustainable, hyper-local food producers.

Get an up close and personal look at the inside of a beehive through a glass-paned demonstration hive. Sharpen your eyes to spot the queen bee, or catch a glimpse of the nuanced "waggle dance" that bees use to communicate the location of nectar hot spots. Learn which High Line plants these pollinators love to snack on.

High Line food vendors, including L'arte del Gelato, People's Pops, LaNewYorkina, Brooklyn Soda Works and Melt Bakery, will offer honey-themed sweet treats in the Chelsea Market Passage.
