If you love the delicious local foods and great community vibe, become a sustainer of the market!
Many local businesses raise their profile as a monthly or seasonal market sponsor. It's affordable, easy, and the benefits are many!
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 on many of the participating farms, and running their own entrepreneurial business, creating farm-made products to sell.
The students sell their own homemade jam, jelly, pesto and herbed soaps and chapsticks, as well as reselling products from Adamah Farm.
The Millerton Farmers Market is sponsored by NECC and funded in part by Dutchess Co., Green Mountain Energy, Hudson River Bank & Trust Co. Foundation, and the Ann & Abe Effron Fund of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley
The Farmers Market accepts food stamps, WIC checks, and Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks - we want to ensure that our produce is accessible to all.
Many of our vendors' prices are comparable to local supermarkets - check us out first before you do your weekly shopping!
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!
