Brooklyn, NY – As Governor Andrew Cuomo started the city’s fourth phase of reopening, Farmers’ markets have been deemed an essential business during this pandemic but, to ensure that the Greenmarket stays, officials say people have got to follow the rules. To shop, customers must wear a face mask or covering and adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Greenmarket was founded in 1976 with a two-fold mission: to promote regional agriculture by providing small family farms the opportunity to sell their locally grown products directly to consumers, and to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.
Greenmarket locations are crucial to the 250 regional farmers and producers who sell through them, as well as to the hundreds of thousands of New York City residents who rely on the them as an essential source of fresh, healthy food.
Eighty-five percent of our farms report that they would not be in business if not for the ability to sell directly to New York City shoppers.
GrowNYC has been a resource for all New Yorkers who want to improve quality of life and protect the environment.
