Farmers markets are more than just another place to check off items on a grocery list. They can be a source of inspiration for food-lovers looking for fresh produce and artisanal goods. Some can even act as a community hub, sparking new connections between local organizations and residents. In certain areas, farmers markets can also bring hard-to-find produce to communities looking for culturally relevant ingredients not often sold at supermarkets. 

If you live Uptown and are looking to visit a farmers market near you, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up a list of local farmers markets Uptown—in order of the southernmost markets to those at the northern tip of Manhattan. 

To see more farmers market locations in the city, consult NYC Health’s handy NYC Farmers Markets map, which lists markets all over New York. You can also text “SoGood” to 55676 to find a farmers market near you.
