Education & Tours

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

Youth and School Programs

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. See us in action!

Adult Programs

Greenmarket Professional Tours offer an in-depth exploration of Greenmarket’s history, mission, operations and marketing efforts. This program is for professional groups, international delegations, government officials, and universities.

Greenmarket Taste & Tour provides a tour of the Greenmarket, with the option to add a presentation at your center (if it is near a Greenmarket). Both tour and presentation include information about the Greenmarket, health and nutrition, and a food sample. This program is for senior centers, non-profit groups, and community organizations serving adult populations. Senior centers, plase note that this program is eligible for DFTA credit.

When inclement weather in the city or in the greater region affects markets, this blog post will be information central for up-to-the-minute schedule changes.
