Sodus Farmers Market

Sodus Farmer’s Market

Sodus Farmers MarketThe Sodus Farmers’ Market was “born” as a result of a chat among friends at the United Third Methodist Church in Sodus village and in consultation with two experienced farmers market vendors. In June 2009, the market started with seven vendors. The response was explosive — most of the vendors were sold out within an hour.  The market grew by leaps and bounds and during the 2015 season, special events were added. This year’s market will feature crafts and activities for children and each week, Eat Smart NY will provide nutritional information. It’s a happy, relaxing environment to meet friends, talk with farmers and learn new ways to prepare fresh fruits and veggies.

When does it open? The Sodus Farmers’ Market opens Wednesday, June 14, 2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. It runs every Wednesday at that time through October 11.

Where is it located? The Sodus Farmers’ Market is located in the parking lot behind Sodus United Third Methodist Church, 58 West Main Street, Sodus, NY.

Does the market accept EBT SNAP Benefits? Yes! The Sodus Farmers’ Market participates in SNAP and Fresh Connect checks, so participants receive a $2.00 bonus check for every $5.00 SNAP tokens they buy. Use your $2 Fresh Connect check to purchase additional SNAP eligible foods in the market. Some farmers accept FMNP/WIC checks.

What do the vendors sell? Local farmers and gardeners offer fresh fruits and vegetables as well as flowers. Other vendors offer baked goods, honey, cheese and garden plants. Local restaurant owners also offer food for sale.

What is happening on August 30? The Sodus Farmers’ Market will offer wellness vendors and special activities on those days. These are great opportunities to visit the market, purchase locally grown foods direct from farmers and experience all that this great market has to offer.

Schenectady Farmers Market

Schenectady Greenmarket

Schenectady Farmers MarketThe market is the home to over seventy vendors throughout the year, all of whom are producer only. Producer only means that everything for sale at the market has been grown, cooked or created by the people selling the product to you. We’re very proud of our producer only status and so are our vendors! Each Sunday vendors, shoppers, musicians and friends gather at Schenectady Greenmarket and enjoy our festive marketplace. Enjoy live music, prepared food and the region’s freshest local produce.

When is the market open?  The market is open Sundays, 10-2, year-round.

Where is the market located?  May-October the market is located around City Hall; November-April we are inside Proctors Schenectady, NY

Does the market accept EBT SNAP Benefits? The most commonly used benefit at the market is EBT/SNAP. You will receive green $1 tokens for your purchases. These tokens are used just like cash for acceptable products. We also participate in the NYS Fresh Connect check program — for every $5 you purchase on your EBT/SNAP card, you receive a $2 coupon that can be used directly with vendors (for acceptable products) at the market. This program increases your purchasing power by 40%. For example, if you spend $10 in EBT, you’ll get an extra $4 in checks – giving you a total of $14 to spend at the market. We also offer reduced prices on Schenectady Greenmarket merchandise, and we’ve offered reduced prices on our Farm Tour in the past as well.

What products do the vendors offer? Vendors sell fruits and vegetables (in season), baked goods, snacks, eggs, meats (pork and beef, pasture-raised chicken), and seasonal flowers all from within a 100 mile radius of Schenectady.

What makes your market special? Since the beginning of Schenectady Greenmarket in 2008, farm vendors have donated excess produce to help fight food insecurity in Schenectady. Starting in 2014, the market began working with its partners MVP Health Care, the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, City Mission of Schenectady and the Schenectady Ambassadors to bring unsold food to City Mission. The partnership has been fruitful with over 8,000 lbs. of food, or roughly 6,700 meals donated in the last two years. In 2015 alone, from June through October, the market’s vendors donated over 5,400 meals to our neighbors in need.

Special Events: Schenectady Greenmarket is intended to be a destination for the whole family. Each week, we host a Children’s Activities Table with a variety of activities designed to make the market an interactive experience for people of all ages. In addition, we encourage other community outreach groups and programs to assist us in offering these activities so that we can include more of the community and offer a greater variety of activities. Such groups have included Schenectady Boys & Girls Club, the Glenville Children’s Museum, and the Union College Chemistry Club. Enjoy live music at Schenectady Greenmarket every Sunday as we showcase some of our finest local musicians.
