Health Bucks

Health Bucks are $2 coupons that can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at all NYC farmers markets.

There are more than 130 farmers markets across the five boroughs every summer and fall. For farmers market locations and days/hours of operation, visit the NYC Health Map. To find a farmers market near you, text “So Good” to 55676 (or “Muy Rico” for Spanish).

Many farmers markets host nutrition-related activities, such as food activities for kids, cooking demonstrations and adult nutrition workshops. If your group wants to schedule an NYC Health Department-run nutrition workshop, email

How to Get Health Bucks
