Manager

Lara Bock owes it to the beautiful North Carolina for introducing herto farming, and local, healthy foods. There she studied History and Political Science at a farm school. She was surrounded by her farming friends, and eating locally from their farm and garden. Ever since then she has made it a practice to eat healthy, and support farming. It thrills her to continue this practice here in her native New York. 

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.

  • Greenmarket

    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.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden
