Do you like to harvest your fresh produce from a local farmer's market? The Captial Region of New York State offers a wide variety of markets located throughout the Albany area where you can find an abundance of locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables. Visiting farmers markets throughout the region helps to support local, small farms, which in turn, helps keep them from being bought out by larger food corporations. In addition, the nearer the food is, the less gas, electricity, and other energy is used transporting it, saving the environment and the economy from the effects of wasted energy.
Find fresh and tasty produce, dairy, preservatives and spices, crafts, and art from your community growers just waiting for you every day at the following markets.
Please note: While we strive to keep this information accurate and up to date, it is always best to confirm hours and location of each farmers' market before going. If you notice an inaccuracy or something missing, please tell us!
