Farmer's Markets

Eating local fresh produce from community farmers markets is satisfying. However, having access and the money to pay for it is another story. Tompkins County now has more farmers' markets and more ways to pay for local farm products to make supporting our farmers even easier. Many of the following markets now accept Food Stamps/SNAP Benefits and Farmers' Market Nutrition Program coupons (WIC and Senior coupons) for produce. Learn how to use these coupons here.

Looking for more farms or markets to explore? Check out Harvest Connection, an initiative led by Rensselaer County with the goal of connecting farms and families in Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady and Washington Counties.
