Description: Families can support this special market,now in its fourth season. Youth from the Bushwick and Ridgewood community come out to this lively market each Saturday to sell fresh fruits and vegetables. Modeled after Greenmarket, Youthmarket is a unique solution to food access in NYC. GrowNYC purchases produce from Greenmarket farmers and trains young people from underserved areas of the city to operate a farm stand in their neighborhood as their own small business.
