ALBANY, N.Y. — A plan to create a new farmers market complex in the Bronx has been awarded nearly $2.5 million in federal funding.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the Greenmarket Regional Food Hub last year. When completed it will feature a farmers market, cold storage and a food processing facility. Cuomo says the idea is to connect farmers with new customers while ensuring that local restaurants and residents alike have greater access to fresh, locally produced food.

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, hailed the federal investment in the project, saying improving local access to healthy foods must be a priority.
