Bronx Borough President Kicks Off the Farmer’s Market Season in The Bronx

On Thursday, July 8, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., along with City Harvest, New Settlement Apartments and Montefiore School Health Program, kicked off the Harvest Home Farmer’s Markets Season in The Bronx.

Harvest Home operates ten farmers’ markets in the borough, offering the opportunity to obtain fresh, good quality products to Bronxites who have limited access to local farm fresh fruits and vegetables. The markets will be open until the beginning of November. For a full calendar, please visit Harvest Home.

“Farmers’ markets are a perfect way to preserve regional farmland, reduce the fossil fuels required to ship food from far distances, and encourage environmentally friendly growing methods. They are also a convenient source of healthy, fresh, local foods for Bronx residents, who are ready to eat better,” said Diaz Jr.
