There’s a growing number of people who don’t just want to know what’s in their food, but also where it comes from.
For farmers, that provides a great opportunity to not only show off the fruits (or vegetables) of their labor, but also to put a face to a name. And now, they’ll have the chance to accomplish both year-round in downtown Albany.
This week it was announced that area residents and visitors will have the chance to meet and converse with Capital Region farmers and vendors year-round at the downtown Albany Fresh Connect Farmers’ Market; the market had previously been scheduled as an event held only in spring and summer at the SUNY Plaza.
Held each Thursday from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, the market will remain at the Plaza, but will move indoors to the first floor of the SUNY administrative building for part of the year.
Expect to see baked goods, plant seedlings, fresh fruits and vegetables, and much more.
