The Rockaway Youthmarket provides much needed access to fresh, affordable foods to a community that is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. GrowNYC is pleased to partner with Rockaway Youth Task Force, who hire the neighborhood youth that run this farmstand.  Participating youth learn small business skills, nutrition education and much more, all while serving their community.
