Mission Statement

Harvest Home Farmers’ Market, Inc. (HHFM) is an East Harlem-based nonprofit whose mission is to increase access to farm fresh, locally grown produce, particularly for consumers in low-income New York City communities identified as "fresh and healthy food deserts." Founded in 1993, HHFM operates 17 farmers' markets in Harlem, the Bronx, and Brooklyn communities that are under-served by grocery stores and other fresh food outlets. The farmers’ markets provide direct-to-consumer economic opportunities for 35 farmers and food producers who sell their goods at HHFM markets.

Description

HHFM has been a significant player in food access and healthy food issues for over 20 years. We have proven that there is considerable demand for fresh food in low-income areas and that when low-income consumers have access to better choices they will take full advantage of them. Through collaboration with other organizations, systems-based advocacy, and public education, we have helped establish a regional and environmentally responsive food and farm economy that supports good nutrition, prevents hunger, enhances communities, and supports healthy lifestyles.
