Columbia County’s largest farmers market, the Hudson Farmers Market has been providing products and seasonal produce from growers and producers for over 18 years. Purchasing your food through the market means that you are getting the freshest, healthiest and tastiest foods and supporting local jobs, and promoting our area’s strong farming tradition.
When is the market open? The market is open Saturdays, 9 am to 1 pm, from April 22 through November 18.
Where is the market located? The market is located at the corner of Sixth Street and Columbia Street, Hudson, NY.
Does the market accept EBT SNAP Benefits? Yes and shoppers can add to what they buy with their EBT cards because we participate in FreshConnect Checks, where shoppers get $2 incentive checks for every $5 they spend at the market with their EBT benefits. We also participate in WIC and Senior coupons. The manager has the EBT terminal and is always on site to help customers understand their benefits and find what they’re looking for.
What products do the vendors offer? We feature a wide variety of products and prices– everything you need to make a healthy meal!
Special Events: We have music every market day and special community guests in a designated tent nearly every week.
