Manager

Samantha is a passionate food and farmer advocate who has the upmost respect for those who grow our food.  She is currently working on her Master’s Degree in Food Systems at NYU with a focus on Sustainable Agriculture and Policy, and hopes to one day change the supply side of our food system so that it is more transparent, fair and healthy-for all.  Her favorite part of managing markets by far is the cooking demo, and she is overjoyed to work for an organization that works hard to increase access for New Yorkers to delicious local food while keeping family farmers in business!

This week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York State's investment of $15 million in the construction of a new Greenmarket Regional Food Hub in the Bronx. The hub, which will be used by GrowNYC's Greenmarket Co. program, will be a state-of-the-art 120,000 square foot facility that will greatly increase New Yorkers' access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.
