New York City‘s Greenmarkets make up the largest farmers market network in the country. After feeling little effect from the arrival of Whole Foods last year next door to its flagship Union Square Greenmarket, New York City opened 10 more Greenmarkets in such diverse neighborhoods as Harlem, the South Bronx, and Bedford-Stuyvesant to make local produce easily available to all of the city‘s urban areas. The city also launched a pilot project to give New Yorkers who receive food stamps greater access to nutritious food at the farmers markets. Right, produce gathered at the Greenmarkets.
