Farmstands

GrowNYC Farmstands are part of a network of food access retail sites operated by GrowNYC, along with Greenmarkets and Fresh Food Box sites. Through Farmstands, GrowNYC trains and employs young people to sell fresh, affordable food in neighborhoods across NYC. The food sold at Farmstands is grown by farmers in the Northeast and transparently sourced through GrowNYC Wholesale. This vital food access program offers important job opportunities for young New Yorkers, ensures healthy, fresh food access across the city, and provides vital revenue for family farms in the Northeast. 

GrowNYC Farmstands were formerly known as Youthmarkets.

If you are a local farmer interested in the wholesaling opportunities offered by Farmstand or a community-based organization interested in becoming a partner, please email us.
