Education & Tours

Greenmarket Youth Education connects thousands of New York City schoolchildren in grades K-12 with Greenmarkets and farmers each year. Fun, interactive learning experiences like Greenmarket School Tours help children gain an understanding of how food choices impact their bodies, their environment and their communities.

We also provide information to teachers and parents interested in bringing students on field trips of regional farms or to the Governors Island Teaching Garden.

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.
