The farmers market is open every Saturday!

Please bring your own tote bag or box for the items you purchase.  A box is recommended especially for seedlings. Customers will be asked to pack their own purchases whenever possible and stay 6 feet apart. 

Our activities to date align with our plans for limiting public events during this time of social distancing and conforms to CDC and State of New York guidelines.  Farm staff and the folks at the tables will be wearing masks and asking customers to shop at each table one at a time.  Please be respectful of others as you visit the farm, do not come in groups, and wear a mask. If you do not come with a mask or choose not to wear one, we will not be able to admit you to the farm.

As previously reported and to bolster the safety of our staff and community, except as outlined in this email, the farm is generally closed to visitors and that policy will continue until further notice. 

We appreciate your passion and support, and we hope to see you on Saturday!
