Let's Go Picking: Fresh Apples and
Juicy Tomatoes in NYC

The best, freshest food is what's grown locally. It's good for your health. It's good for New York. This year, EmblemHealth is supporting even more local farmersí markets, including Harvest Home Farmer's Market, Grow NYC and 125th Street Farmer's Market.

We encourage you and your clients to visit any of the markets listed below. They're open through November. At the Harvest Home Markets, we'll even demonstrate how to prepare the fresh produce. We share the recipes, so the same healthy dishes can be made at home.

Some farmers' markets offer more than just produce. You'll find a variety of other items and activities such as:

  • Fresh fish
  • Locally grown flowers
  • Skin care products
  • Family-friendly activities
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Classes on nutrition and gardening
