Farmers' Markets

Why shop at a Farmers' Market?  Because that's where you'll find the freshest local vegetables, lamb, pork, berries, herbs, flowers, maple syrup, cheese, baked goods, crafts and much more! Chenango County residents have five great farmers' markets where they can buy the tastiest local produce and support local farmers when they shop. Each farmers' market has its own unique vendors and products available, as well as convenient times to shop. The peak of the growing season is the best time to find the widest variety of local produce while you support local farms and the local economy. For more information on Chenango County Farmers Markets, call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chenango County at (607) 334-5841.
