CITY FARMS MARKETS
City Farms Markets: Community-Run | Urban & Regional Growers | Fresh Food for All
City Farms Markets are a network of community-run farmers markets in New York City that support both urban growers and regional farmers and serve low-income communities. In 2014, there are 28 City Farms Markets in Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan and Queens.
Each City Farms Market is started and managed by members of their own community who want to bring fresh, affordable food to their neighborhoods. The Network is managed by Just Food, providing member markets with training and resources, networking opportunities, cooking demonstrations by Just Food Community Chefs, network vendor and market insurance, and more.

How can I join an existing market?
Our City Farms Markets provide opportunities for gardeners to sell their produce. In addition, City Farms Markets rely heavily on volunteers, and are always looking for volunteers to help run their market.

How can I start a City Farms Market?
Starting a farmers market is a lot of work and a lot of fun! To start a City Farms Market, you must have: 1) a committed group 2) community gardeners interested in selling their produce 3) support of your community. The City Farms Program hosts a training program for groups that meet those 3 goals and want to start a farmers market.
