NYC Health + Hospitals has again partnered with Harvest Home Farmer’s Market ... Farmers markets offer a variety of affordable, regionally grown vegetables, fruits, and fresh juices in communities where residents sometimes lack access to quality produce at reasonable prices. Shopping at farmers markets supports regional agriculture and helps educate communities about the importance of healthy eating through on-site cooking and nutrition demonstrations, health tips, and healthy recipes, and as well as information about how eating fruits and vegetables can prevent or control the symptoms of obesity and chronic disease.

Harvest Home Farmer's Market: Making Local Agriculture Accessible to All

With the slogan: ‘We envision a world in which all people are health,’ Harvest Home Farmer’s Market (Harvest Home) is one tangible step towards closing the ‘food gap’ - the chasm that exists between the food systems available to the poor, and those available to everyone else. In spite of the current attention being given to health (and taste) benefits of locally produced food, fresh produce still remains a luxury out of reach to many who lack the means to afford good quality food. Harvest Home, which operates New York State’s largest network of farmer’s markets in low-income neighborhoods, reinforces its market activities with community wellness projects such as cooking demonstrations. --Full Release
