About Our Market
The South Bronx Farmers Market is located on the south side of 138th Street, between Willis and Alexander Avenues, in Mott Haven, South Bronx, near the 3rd Avenue/138th Street subway station on the 6 train. In 2015, the Market will be open every Saturday, from June 13 through November 21, from 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. We accept SNAP/EBT, WIC and FMNP checks. We will also participate in NYC's Health Bucks Program - during the Health Bucks season (July - Sept) shoppers that use their EBT at the markets will received a $2 Health Buck for every $5 spent, adding 40% to their spending power.
Directions: Take the 6 train to 3rd Avenue/138th Street, the first stop on the 6 train heading into the Bronx from Manhattan. Exit the train at Alexander Avenue (the east entrance) and the Market is across the street!
