The announcement for the daylong concert was made in New York's Union Square Greenmarket and will take place on Randall's Island Sept. 9, said a release from Farm Aid.
"The city strongly supports sustainable family farming through our Greenmarket program, which has nearly doubled its locations over the past five years, and it's an honor to be hosting Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Farm Aid for their 2007 concert," said Bloomberg.
"Farm Aid is coming to New York because your enthusiasm for family farm food is keeping family farmers on the land. We are thankful to Mayor Bloomberg, the City Council and the many activists here who are leading efforts so that every New Yorker has access to more food from family farms," said Nelson.
