Our growing youth-run farmers’ market is managed by the young people in our Environmental Program. It runs every Wednesday until the end of November, providing over 5,000 pounds of fresh food to over 2,000 community residents in an area deemed a food desert due to the lack of quality supermarkets and access to fresh produce. One-third of all sales are via NYC “Health Bucks” –  vouchers that support low-income residents with purchasing fresh produce.
