Farmers Markets | NYC Health + Hospitals

Farmers Markets

Proper eating is essential for good health. A diet with fruits, grains, and vegetables keeps you and your family fit. Along with exercise and regular check-ups, nutritious food helps to control or avoid chronic health conditions and keeps you feeling great.

Farmers’ Markets Help You and Your Family

Our farmers’ markets offer many affordable, locally grown vegetables and fruits, along with fresh juices and flowers. They’re located in communities where residents lack access to fresh produce at reasonable prices. The markets are hosted in partnership with Harvest Home Farmer’s Market and GrowNYC, two local non-profit organizations.

Many of our markets conduct on-site cooking demonstrations at no charge for healthful eating tips so you can fight obesity and avoid chronic disease. Numerous programs and payment options help residents buy food at the farmers’ markets, so everyone can eat well.

GrowNYC Fresh Food Box/Food Bag Program
