Greenmarkets in Brooklyn, New York

All information has now been updated for the 2013 season!
As seasonal markets open, their markers will turn green
(click on the marker to see the opening date).

Founded in the 1970's by urban planners and community activists Barry Benape and Bob Lewis, greenmarkets bring the freshest food to New Yorkers, help preserve family farming around the New York City area, and help foster community and interaction with your neighbors and local farmers.

In Brooklyn, there are Greenmarkets operated by GrowNYC.org farmers' markets operated by or sponsored by local community groups and churches.

Many of the markets accept both credit cards and Food Stamp/EBT cards. At some you can even receive a bonus -- in the form of "Health Bucks" from the NYC Department of Health -- for shopping for produce at the markets with your EBT card. For more details, see the bottom of this page.

Wondering what's in season? Check this handy Chart from GrowNYC.org!

Now that we're into the month of June, Seasonal markets will start opening up. Most will be open by the end of the first week of July. As they open, their markers on the map will turn green.

Health Bucks at the Farmers Markets

NYC farmers markets provide an opportunity for residents to buy fresh and affordable produce while supporting regional farmers. Health Bucks, worth $2 each, are developed and distributed by NYC Health Department District Public Health Offices and can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farmers markets (listed on each Health Buck). At farmers markets that accept Food Stamps (Electronic Benefit Cards/EBT), one Health Buck coupon will be given to each customer for every $5 of Food Stamps spent at the market. The Health Department encourages all New Yorkers to eat more fruits and vegetables to improve their health and reduce their risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Support your local farmers markets and have a happy and healthy summer!
