Through our Mobile Markets, City Harvest delivers fresh fruits and vegetables, free of charge, to thousands of New Yorkers each month.
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 also partner with other non-profit organizations, including Brighter Bites, Harlem Children’s Zone, and the YWCA in Queens to create bi-monthly food distributions at sites that are fully operated by members of the community they serve.
From January 2021 through March 2021, our Mobile Markets were open from 11am to 1pm. Beginning April 3, our Mobile Markets will be open from 9:30 to 11:30am.
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:
