All of the city's farmers markets will accept Health Bucks coupons, which are good for $2 of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg yesterday announced that for the first time all 138 of the city’s farmers markets will accept Health Bucks coupons, which are good for $2 of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Bloomberg hopes the program will give more low-income New Yorkers access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and help fight obesity in the city. Last year only 65 farmers markets accepted the city’s Health Bucks.
