Summer Market Vendors

NECC Student Project

Students staffing NECC's table are participants in our job training project, the Community Partnership with Schools and Business.


Teens in NECC's Farm and Food Education program work each summer at the market, helping many of the participating farms, and running their own entrepreneurial business, creating farm-made products to sell.

The students sell homemade jam, jelly, pesto and honey.

Fresh Food Pantry
Fresh Food Pantry
For the past five years, The North East Community Center's Fresh Food Pantry has purchased and delivered a wide variety of fresh, locally produced vegetables, milk, and eggs to four area food pantries for distribution to food-insecure residents. The program makes it possible for several small farms to increase their production and sales and for 125 households of low income to obtain fresh, nutritious food that they could not otherwise afford.
Over the years, NECC has collaborated with suppliers like Rock Steady Farm and Flowers in Millerton (produce), Full Circus Farm in Pine Plains (produce), Sparrowbush Farm (produce), Hudson Valley Fresh (milk), Black Sheep Hill Farm in Pine Plains (eggs) and Feather Ridge Farm (eggs).
Distribution is as follows from June until October. (Distribution in Pine Plains and Amenia continues through February.)
Pine Plains Food Locker at the Methodist Church Pine Plains ~ 2nd Saturday of each month at 10am. Eligible clients need to live in the Pine Plains School District.
Vines and Branches Amenia at the Church of the Immaculate Conception/St Anthony’s ~ 3rd Saturday of each month at 10am
Dutchess Community Action Partnership office in Dover Second Monday of the Month- 3414 NY-22, Dover Plains, NY 12522 (call ahead to inquire at (845) 877-9272.
In November and December there will be holiday distributions in partnership with the Millerton Food Pantry.
This program is made possible through the generosity of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley and an anonymous $10,000 donation. To support the Fresh Food Pantry and enable us to help more families, give online now!

Founded by community visionary Karen Kisslinger, the Millerton Farmers Market seeks to promote and assist local farms and promote the value of food grown and made without chemicals, both for human health and the environment. Most of our growers are either organic or otherwise "clean-grown" - all will provide a statement of growing practices upon request!
