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 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!
For professional groups, international delegations, government officials, and universities, the Greenmarket Professional Tour offers an in-depth exploration of Greenmarket’s mission, operations and marketing efforts led by senior-level staff.
For senior centers, non-profit groups, and community organizations serving adult populations, Greenmarket Taste and Tour provides a tour of the Greenmarket with the option to add a presentation at your center (if it is near a Greenmarket). Senior centers: this program is eligible for DFTA credit.
