NYC Health + Hospitals Expands Access From Harlem To Hollis With Farmers Markets

June 13, 2023

NYC Health + Hospitals has launched a new season of farmers’ markets, situated at public hospitals and community health centers throughout the city.

Collaborating with local partners such as GrowNYC, Harvest Home, Uptown Grand Central, and the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, these markets aim to provide convenient access to fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables at affordable prices for all community members.

Mitchell Katz, MD, President and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals, expressed enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, “Summer is a great time of year to try new fruits and vegetables, and we’re making it easier by bringing farmers’ markets to our campuses. I want to thank our community partners for helping us provide fresh, local produce to our patients, staff, and communities.”

To ensure accessibility, various payment options are available at these farmers markets, including EBT/SNAP, Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons, and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) coupons. Additionally, GrowNYC offers the year-round Fresh Food Boxes program at NYC Health + Hospitals/Carter, offering seasonal produce at prices well below market rates through collaborative purchasing.
