Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.
Greenmarket offers a variety of specialized educational programming targeted to youth and seniors.
Greenmarket Youth Education connects thousands of New York City schoolchildren in grades K-12 with Greenmarkets and farmers each year. Fun, interactive learning experiences like Greenmarket School Tours help children gain an understanding of how food choices impact their bodies, their environment and their communities. Our in-school Seed to Plate curriculum teaches 5th and 6th graders about agriculture, cooking and nutrition.
We also provide information to teachers and parents interested in bringing students on field trips of regional farms or to the Governors Island Teaching Garden.
Greenmarket Seniors brings older New Yorkers to the farmers market for a guided tour and tasting and offers presentations at senior centers as well.
