The best fresh, locally grown, homemade and organic produce and products can be found close by.  When you shop at a "Farmer's Market," you invest in your community, meet your neighbors and support the local and regional food system. You help to preserve the environment, as there will be far less transportation--most fruits and vegetables in the US are picked 4 to 7 days before being placed on supermarket shelves and shipped for an average of 1500 miles before being sold.

A listing of 2013 local Bronx markets will be posted as soon as available.
Most outdoor markets are open from mid-April until late October to mid-November.

The Food Movement: Its Power and Possibilities by
Frances Moore Lappé published in the October 3, 2011 issue of  The Nation:

"...Some Americans see the food movement as 'nice' but peripheral-a middle-class preoccupation with farmers' markets, community gardens
and healthy school lunches. But, no, I'll argue here.  It is at heart revolutionary, with some of the world's poorest people in the lead, from Florida farmworkers to Indian villagers.  It has the potential to transform not just the way we eat but the way we understand our world, including ourselves. And that vast power is just beginning to erupt."
