The Capital 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.
