The Get Fresh Yonkers Farmer’s Market is run by our Youth Farm Team. Youth ages 14-17 who are enrolled in Yonkers Public High School are eligible to apply. Farm Team is an employment program which begins at the end of March, with planting and bed building, and runs through the end of October. Youth learn intensive urban agriculture and, through managing the farmers market, the skills of running a small business. In addition, youth will develop their own value-added product, such as jam, salsa or tomato sauce, which will then be sold at the market.
Applications for Farm Team 2015 will be available in February.
