NYC Health + Hospitals Announces New Season in Farmer’s Markets Near Patient Care Sites

Farmers’ markets run by GrowNYC and Harvest Home make fresh fruits and vegetables more accessible to patients, visitors, staff and the wider community

New York, New York

NYC Health + Hospitals today launched a new season at farmers markets hosted by public hospitals and public health centers across the city. Farmer’s markets, run by local partners GrowNYC, Harvest Home, Uptown Grand Central and the State Department of Agriculture and New York Markets, make it easier for everyone in the community to access fresh local fruits and vegetables at an affordable price.

“Healthy food is a medicine that all New Yorkers should have access to,” they said New York Mayor Eric Adams. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of our farmer’s markets on NYC Health + Hospitals sites, as well as throughout the city, and together we will ensure that all New Yorkers have access to the healthy food they deserve.

“Fruits and vegetables are essential for a healthy diet and good health,” they said President and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals Mitchell Katz, Ph.D.. “These farmers’ markets will make it easier and more accessible for our patients, staff and communities to eat healthily, and we would not be able to do so without our community partners.

Various payment options are available to help New Yorkers take advantage of farmers’ markets and fresh food box sites, including EBT / SNAP, Adult Farmer’s Food Market (FMNP) coupons and women’s coupons, infants and children (WIC).

In addition, GrowNYC offers the Fresh Food Boxes program year-round at NYC Health + Hospitals / Carter. The boxes offer seasonal local produce, well below the market price through the power of co-purchase. Individuals can sign up for the program at https://www.grownyc.org/foodbox/UGC
