The Final Mile: The Hunt's Point Produce Market
Join OHNY and New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) for a trip to the Hunt’s Point Produce Market, a co-operative market through which 60% of the produce consumed in the New York Metropolitan Area passes every day. On this morning tour, you’ll walk one of the four massive “row” buildings, each a third of a mile long, then visit a variety of packaging plants within the facility. Afterwards, market manager Myra Gordon will lead a group discussion of the role that the produce market plays in the city’s food system.
(Admission includes round-trip bus transportation from Open House New York’s office at 1133 Broadway.)
Please note that photographs are not permitted at the Hunt's Point Produce Market.
The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York is a year-long series of public programs, organized by Open House New York as part of its ongoing Urban Systems Series. The Final Mile is intended to shed light on New York City’s dynamic and multi-layered food economy while introducing and exploring approaches to render this invisible system more tangible.
The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York is made possible with generous support from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
