Harvest Home Farmer’s Market Incentivizes CT Farmers to Sell in NYC

harvest home news banner

Harvest Home Farmer’s Market is excited to offer an incentive program to farmers to sell crops in New York City markets!

Harvest Home Farmer’s Market operates 14 farmer’s markets in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Upper Manhattan. We are committed to bringing local food to all New York City neighborhoods and are looking to welcome new farmers in 2024. This program, called Farm-to-City, is for farmers, especially traditionally-underserved farmers, expanding to a new Harvest Home market. Farms can be reimbursed up to $7,000 each season, for each market, for costs related to selling crops with Harvest Home. Producers can use subsidized funds to offset expenses, including but not limited to:

  • Fuel
  • Tolls
  • Labor
  • Market equipment
  • Seeds
  • Market rent

Markets at Harvest Home run June through November. For 2024, we are particularly looking for fruit growers, but welcome all farmers to apply. For more information, please visit our website at www.harvesthomefm.org, or contact the Farm-to-City Program Manager, Mark Benedetti, at 929-274-7507 or via email at markb@harvesthomefm.org.
