Active community partners The Upper Greenside and St Stephen's Church contribute environmental and recycling information and activities, volunteers, and promotional support to help Greenmarket create a thriving market in this neighborhood.

On Monday, July 11, we launched the “Oh SNAP!” educational campaign with a live mural painting on a Greenmarket, Co. delivery truck. The “Oh SNAP!” campaign was designed to draw attention to the fact that GrowNYC’s network of Greenmarkets accept electronic benefits cards (EBT) and shoppers can use their SNAP benefits to purchase farm-fresh produce from the region’s mid-sized family farmers.
