Mott Haven farmers market popular with locals
A Mott Haven famer's market is so popular with the locals it sells out of produce every time its open, organizers say.
The Mott Haven Farm Stand is located outside of Segundo Ruiz Belvis Diagnostic Treatment Center on E. 142nd Street.
The stand sells cabbage, corn, and apples, among some of their fresh produce.
Organizer Carolina Espinosa says the market is in a great location, and customers often visit the stand to escape everyday city life.
"People just always enjoy using this area as a break from anything else that’s going on in their lives. They just come to get together with other people who they're friends with. They bring their friends too. It's sort of like a nice break from their everyday routine," Espinosa says.
