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 K-12 school tours are paused this Fall! However, you can take tour students on a self-guided tour at any of our weekday Greenmarkets or you can watch a virtual tour of the Union Square Greenmarket in your classroom. You may also check out GrowNYC’s Distance Learning Page for more resources you can use with your students. For more updated information about our youth programming, please check here.
GrowNYC Food Access & Agriculture Education introduces New Yorkers of all ages to farming in our region, the food system, and how food choices impact our bodies, our communities, and our environment. We provide fun and engaging tours of our Greenmarket farmers markets to more than 6,000 people each year. School tours are available in fall and spring to grades K-12, and we design programs in partnership with summer camps as well.
Adult tours and presentations are available by request for older adult (senior) centers and community-based organizations, as well as for professional organizations and university groups interested in food and agriculture in the Northeast.
Teachers and parents interested in bringing students on field trips to regional farms can access resources here. If you would like to bring students to visit a NYC farm, you may request a tour of GrowNYC's Governors Island Teaching Garden. Please note, these in-person opportunities have limited capacity.
