LOCAL FARMERS MARKETS

Here in the Northwest Corner, we are so fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, where multi-generational farming families and small, independent farmers work to provide us with the freshest and most beautiful products.  Each week farmers and artisan food producers fill the markets with the bounty of our region.  This is a great way to meet the friendly people that are the faces behind the food you’re buying, as well as a chance to see, taste and learn about their farm-fresh products. At some markets, you will find chef demonstrations, music, food education events, and amazing arts and crafts that make for a perfect community gathering place for everyone to enjoy.  Be sure to check the market links regularly as vendors and provisions change from week to week.

The Copake Hillsdale Famers Market nestled in Roeliff Jansen Park’s green pasture, offers a warm and welcoming indoor-outdoor marketplace that abounds with fresh, healthful and locally-grown foods harvested in Copake, Hillsdale and surrounding areas.

Our market helps support the vital role of local farms and small businesses – the backbone of our rural communities. Each week our Harvest Barn comes alive with farm fresh produce such as seasonal fruits and vegetables, locally pressed cider, grass-fed meats, cheese, sausage and other charcuterie, pickles, pies, artisan breads, jellies and jams, vegan treats, cut flowers, and much more.

In between the shopping, visitors meander through the Harvest Barn, mingle with friends and neighbors, catch up on local news and relax at our outdoor tables serenaded by local musicians. Children are welcome! Our gifted and talented volunteers can be found busy at work with arts and crafts, leading story times, nature crafts, games and other safe and structured activities. And adults with a green thumb appreciate the master gardeners who stop by and take questions on raised beds, flower beds, and the occasional weed or bug.
