Flowers aren’t the only things that blooming during spring. Back with the warm weather are fresh food farmers’ markets throughout the Bronx and Queens areas. Here we listed our favorite markets, along with their times, seasons, and accepted methods of payment.

An extra tip for smart shoppers: Some markets accept Health Bucks, which are coupons worth $2 each that can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables. Shoppers who use EBT cards receive a Health Buck for every $5.00 they spend.
