Mobile Markets bring free, fresh fruits and vegetables to NYC Neighborhoods

Mobile Markets bring free, fresh fruits and vegetables to residents in NYC Healthy Neighborhoods.

Community members gather in farmers market settings, where they receive fresh produce and participate in cooking demonstrations to learn how to make healthy meals. Our community health partners also offer free wellness programs, such as blood pressure screenings.

We provide over three million pounds of fresh produce – including sweet potatoes, grapefruit, apples, cabbage, carrots, squash, and collard greens – to nearly 10,000 households each year through these markets.
