Farmer’s Markets and Play Streets In Harlem

Harlem and the Bronx were the only two places in the the NYC area the jumped on the great idea of combining a Farmer’s Market street closers with play streets. Play streets include the same street closers as the market but offer the kids a play to play games an exercise while their parents shop for more healthy foods. The study found that 855 youths attended the East Harlem play street from July 15 to Aug. 26. What a great way to spend the weekend with a little shopping and a little fun and exercise. Thanks to our friends at for this story.
