Wen-Jay Ying is addicted to the local food movement. After her time working with Americorps, Just Food, and Red Jacket, she decided to create her own dream job; with a rental car and no business training she started Local Roots NYC. Local Roots NYC connects New Yorkers with freshly picked organic produce and small batch provision from local farms. We support local farmers, small batch producers, and artisanal makers through our CSA food program and brick-and-mortar market. More than just a food hub, we are a vibrant movement that promotes a transparent and sustainable food chain and fosters empowerment by providing New Yorkers with an alternate way to eat food in a way that is more aligned with their own passion and beliefs.
