Definition of farmer's market

The dictionary definition of a farmer’s market is simple. Nearly everyone is familiar with them, but what the definition leaves out is the work, planning, experience, and commitment it takes for farmers to grow and produce the quality products they proudly display.  When you visit a New York State farmers market, you are supporting our regional agriculture and receiving the healthiest and most delicious products available.

New York State farmer’s markets are a wonderful medley of home grown, fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, honey and maple products, organic products, meats, fish, home baked goods, or fresh flowers. New York’s unique and varied climates ensure that you will find consistently wonderful products with regional variations that are unique to each market.

The foods and products are amazing, but one of the coolest things about these markets are the spirit of cooperation and camaraderie among the vendors. It’s typical to see everyone smiling, taking their time browsing the goods, and striking up conversations with strangers. A sense of pride and community are why customers flock to these markets to sample, purchase and savor everything New York State growers and producers have to offer.
