Our network of Greenmarket farmers markets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites, coupled with GrowNYC Wholesale, ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.
Greenmarket Bucks are $2 coupons that can be used to purchase products at all GrowNYC Food Retail Sites. Greenmarket Bucks are intended to introduce new customers to the fresh foods available at Greenmarket farmers markets, Farmstands and Fresh Food Box sites, as well as increase revenue for producers.
New in 2021, Healthfirst insurance members enrolled in its Life Improvement Plan (LIP) and CompleteCare (CC) plan can use their over-the-counter (OTC)/Healthy Foods and Produce dollars to purchase items at GrowNYC Greenmarkets, Farmstands, and Fresh Food Box sites. Simply bring your OTC card to the site coordinator at any of our food retail sites. If you are at a Greenmarket, the manager will swipe your card for any amount in $2 incremenents, and you will be provided with Greenmarket Bucks (worth $2 each) in exchange. The Greenmarket Bucks can be spent on fruits and vegetables throughout the market. All farmers selling fruits and vegetables accept Greenmarket Bucks. If you’re visiting a Farmstand or Fresh Food Box, simply use your OTC card to pay directly for the items you’ve selected.
