THE BRONX - One local farmers market is making a positive impact on the community and its students.

The Youth Market is one of three programs within the Grow NYC organization that brings fresh farmer's produce to inner-city neighborhoods.

The market has three missions: providing the community with fresh fruits and vegetables, providing youths with seasonal jobs and providing the farmers additional revenue.

The Youth Market runs from July through November.

It also features cooking demonstrations of healthy recipes.
