NYC Health + Hospitals Announces New Season Of Farmers Markets Near Patient Care Sites

June 14, 2022

NYC Health + Hospitals today launched a new season of farmers markets hosted at public hospitals and community health centers across the city.

The farmers markets, operated by local partners GrowNYC, Harvest Home, Uptown Grand Central, and the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, make it easy for anyone in the community to access fresh, local fruits and vegetables at an affordable price.

“Fruits and vegetables are essential to a healthy diet and good health,” said NYC Health + Hospitals President and CEO Mitchell Katz, MD. “These farmers markets will make it easier and more affordable for our patients, staff, and communities to eat healthy, and we couldn’t do it 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, Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons, and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) coupons.

In addition, GrowNYC offers the Fresh Food Boxes program year-round at NYC Health + Hospitals/Carter. The boxes offer seasonal, local produce well below market price through the power of collaborative purchasing. Individuals can sign up for the program at
