GrowNYC Farmstand locations are part of a network of food access retail sites operated by GrowNYC, along with Greenmarket. Through Farmstand, GrowNYC sells fresh, affordable food in underserved and under resourced neighborhoods across NYC. The food sold at Farmstand is grown by farmers in the Northeast and transparently sourced through GrowNYC Wholesale. This vital food access program also offers important job opportunities for New Yorkers, ensures healthy, fresh food access across the city, and provides vital revenue for family farms in the Northeast.

The Ridgewood Farmstand was founded in 2008.
The Ridgewood Farmstand is one of the longest running Farmstands! This lively market operates each Saturday in partnership with Ridgewood Local Development Corporation and the Myrtle Avenue Business Improvement District.
