Fruits and veggies have been growing in the RYTF Urban Farm and Community Garden for almost two months and we are ready to harvest. Through our partnership with Grow NYC, we are happy to announce the opening of the annual Youth Market Farm Stand on Saturday, July 8th. Drop by the RYTF Urban Farm and Community Garden every Saturday from 9:00am to 2:00pm to get your hands on fresh, local, organic produce at an affordable price! We will also have food demonstrations and samples each week. The Farm Stand is part of RYTF’s longstanding commitment to food justice. Our program started as a desire to provide sustainable and healthy food options to residents impacted by Superstorm Sandy. Through our partnership with Grown NYC, our annual Youth Market brings nutritious food options into our community, while educating our neighbors on healthy eating. While the fight is far from over, the RYTF Urban Farm and Community Garden is a step forward on the path to improving food options for residents in our community.
