Food Box Program

On May 1, the Schenectady Greenmarket launched a new Food Box Program supported by a grant from The Schenectady Foundation, for pickup and delivery of produce for lower income customers throughout its Outdoor Market season. Schenectady Greenmarket’s Outdoor Market operates around Schenectady City Hall on Jay, Franklin, and Clinton streets from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. every Sunday through November 20. Schenectady Greenmarket serves as a vital food-system in downtown Schenectady connecting farm and city to provide fresh, local produce and products from over 80 diverse vendors.

Schenectady Greenmarket’s new Food Box Program is a low-cost weekly food box share program in which eligible participants pay at the market $10 for a small share (5-7 produce items) or $14 for a large share (10-12 produce items). Sign ups are available the third Thursday of each month and close the following Thursday. For those picking up their products, they can choose their own items from a variety available each week at the market table. A delivery option is also available for eligible customers within 10 miles of City Hall.
