Inclement weather in the city or in the greater region does affect markets;  markets may close early, or snow-bound farmers may not be able to make it into the city.

  • Greenmarket

    Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden

    We build and support community and school gardens through tool loans, volunteer days, technical assistance, training, school garden grants and more.

  • Educate

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 60,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
