BROOKLYN - A group of young people in Brownsville are making a push to get Brooklyn residents to eat healthier.

The youth farmer's market has been open on the corner of Liviona and Rockaway avenues since July. Workers say the market is a great way to eat better and helps them give back to the community.

Organizers say it also helps the neighborhood's kids stay off the streets, while giving them lessons in how to run a business.

The market is open twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday, from 1 p.m. - 7 p.m. until Oct. 28.
