BRONX - Bronx residents now have a variety of options for healthy eating.

A new green market opened on Tuesday outside Hostos Community College on the Grand Concourse.

The market is a partnership with the college, established to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to local families.

Advocates say that healthy eating and organic foods are lacking in the Bronx community. Farmers say that local green markets help their businesses to grow.

The green market will open every Tuesday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. until Nov. 24.
