Giovanni Edwards manages the youth at this one-stand market in Manhattan. He picks up produce from farmers in upstate NY, then brings it to the city for the youth to sell. He is working with the youth to teach them marketing, different types of fruits/vegetables and uses of food. The Green Market aims to teach, “Learn it, Grow it and Eat it,” through this program with the youth in other areas of the city.

Giovanni and the youth work Saturdays 9-3 at this market. He has been involved with the Green Markets most of his life, first trying to get fresh produce into his home neighborhood in the city.
