New Yorkers will be able to enjoy fresh produce from new farmer's markets around the city.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the creation of 10 new Greenmarkets this summer. The markets will open in a few weeks and will stay open until Thanksgiving.

The mayor said the markets are part of a city effort to bring affordable, fresh produce to underserved communities. Many of the greenmarkets will take senior coupons, WIC coupons, and EBT cards for vegetables and fruits.

Nine of the markets will be in Manhattan and one will be in the Bronx.
