Adirondack region farms, artisans, apiaries, local breweries, bakeries, and other regional vendors are preparing to offer their products at the region’s farmers markets, taking place throughout the summer and fall. The region boasts 65 farmers markets, taking place in small communities and larger villages throughout the Adirondacks. Farmers markets allow consumers to have easy access to locally grown food, allowing them to support local farmers and foster a sense of community as popular weekly events.

Adirondack Harvest, a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Essex County, is dedicated to promoting local agriculture, has developed a directory of the farmers markets dotting the Adirondack landscape which can be accessed at Adirondackharvest.com. The website shares information about market locations, schedules, and information about seasonal produce. Dedicated to promoting the local food and agriculture of the region, Adirondack Harvest connects farmers, producers, and consumers to strengthen the agricultural community and foster a sustainable food system while preserving both local food access and scenic landscapes.
