Education & Tours

Greenmarket offers a variety of specialized educational programming for youth and adults.

Greenmarket Youth Education connects thousands of New York City schoolchildren in grades K-12 with Greenmarkets and farmers each year. Our fun, interactive Greenmarket School Tours help children gain an understanding of farming in our region and how their food choices impact their bodies, their communities and their environment. We have also collected information for teachers and parents interested in bringing students on field trips of regional farms. If you would like to bring students to visit a farm, you may also request a tour of GrowNYC's Governors Island Teaching Garden.

Greenmarket Taste and Tour provides education at farmers markets and community centers for older New Yorkers and other adult communities.

Finally, we offer tours of Greenmarket for a fee to agricultural and other professionals, government officials, and college groups. These fees help support our education work.
