THE BRONX - A local farmer's market is giving back to the area by bringing farm-fresh taste to the tables of Bronx residents each week.

La Familia Verde has produce donated from a coalition of five local gardens. Each are tilled by volunteer urban farmers who merge eating smart with community outreach.

The market is open every Tuesday outside Tremont Park from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. through Nov. 13.
