Our Story

 
 

Harvest Home Farmer’s Market (HHFM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to local, farm-fresh produce to residents of some of New York City’s most underserved communities. Founded in 1993, HHFMs have been offering healthy and affordable alternatives to the limited choices—which are often the only choices­­— in the City’s so-called “food deserts.”    

 HHFM is a pioneer in bringing farmers’ markets to low-income New Yorkers and underserved neighborhoods. Today, we are one the largest managers of farmers’ markets in New York City. HHFM operates locations throughout the city, and serves more than 250,000 shoppers a year. 

 Harvest Home Farmer’s Markets work in partnership with farmers from the metropolitan region, to bring affordable fresh fruits and vegetables to neighborhoods. HHFM collaborates with community organizations, churches, and elected officials. HHFMs accept cash, electronic benefit transfers (EBTs), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (SNAP), and Women Infant and Children and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers (WIC-FMNP), as well as New York City subsidy coupons for low-income residents.

Local, Farm-Fresh Produce

HHFM provides opportunities to eat healthy on a tight food budget,  participate in cooking demonstrations, improve health through better nutrition and enjoy an healthful, outdoor experience.
