The 170 Farm Stand is a vibrant youth-run market, offering a selection of high quality and fresh food from local farmers at fair and reasonable prices, education on the value of seasonal eating, and food scraps composting for Mt. Eden residents of all ages. We are a team of youth and adults at New Settlement’s Community Food Action who believe that our neighborhood deserves the same access to resources as New York City’s wealthiest areas.

We sell fruit, vegetables, and herbs, eggs, and dry goods such as honey, beans, and flour. All products are sourced from local small and midsize farmers with natural growing practices and a commitment to using as little pesticides as possible.

Visit the Farmers Markets for Kids tent for fun nutrition and cooking workshops for kids! Each child (ages 3-11) and their caretaker will participate in a lesson, taste a recipe made from ingredients for sale at the farm stand, and receive a Health Buck coupon that can be used to buy ingredients and make the recipe at home.

Bring your food scraps to the GrowNYC Compost on the Go Station! What can you bring? Vegan plus eggshells – coffee grounds, plant trimmings, vegetable peels, and more. They will be used at PS 294/PS 311 to make compost for the school garden!
