GrowNYC Annual Report 2012 | Wholesale Greenmarket

Wholesale Greenmarket

Open March through December, the Wholesale Greenmarket is New York City’s only open-air wholesale farmers’ market. Located in Hunts Point, Wholesale Greenmarket offers over 100 local and regional farm-fresh products including fruits, vegetables, herbs, plants, and flowers at competitive wholesale prices and quantities. Wholesale Greenmarket vendors grow their own produce and sell direct to NYC buyers. Straight from the farm each morning, their products travel a short distance, ensuring premium quality, food safety, and traceability. The market is open to the public during operating hours and serves a multitude of wholesale buyers such as grocers and restaurants. The Wholesale Greenmarket is also the primary source of fresh produce for GrowNYC’s Youthmarket and Fresh Food Box programs. Thanks to Greenmarket Co. staffing and infrastructure, these important food access programs were able to source produce from the Wholesale Greenmarket more efficiently and effectively in 2012.
