If you live in Manhattan, then there’s a farmer’s market near you. Grow NYC has established 23 Greenmarkets on the island, where residents can purchase fresh veggies, produced from farms in Brooklyn to the Hudson Valley. Many locations also offer prepared food, breads, and art.
The organization, which started in 1976, also runs a collection of Youthmarkets. Here local kids operate booths of local vegetables in their neighborhoods, which otherwise may not have access to fresh produce. Grow NYC also has markets in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Many of these locations also accept clothing collections and food-scrap drop offs- minimizing waste in the city.
