Farmers' Market of the Week: Oneonta

The Watershed Agricultural Council and Pure Catskills are featuring a different Catskills farmers' market every week during the 2015 growing season.

This week's market is the Oneonta Farmers' Market, located on Main Street Plaza in downtown Oneonta.

The Oneonta Farmers' Market is held every Saturday on Main Street Plaza from May through October, from 9am to 1pm. From November through April, there is a winter market located at the Main Street Garage Walkway, at the top level of the Oneonta city parking garage.

The Oneonta Farmers' Market has been proudly vendor-run since 2009. Visit the Oneonta Farmers' Market to meet the people behind the food. Every Saturday is a meet-your-grower day at the market, where you can find the best in local meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables, and other delicious farm-fresh foods, and ask your farmers about their crops, their growing methods and find our what's in season now. The market is a gathering place for friends and neighbors, a community platform for local non-profit organizations, and a place to hear a free open-air concert every week. Free tastings and activities for kids are regular features of our market, plus a full schedule of special events generously sponsored by local businesses.

The Oneonta Farmers' Market functions under the auspices of Destination Oneonta, a 501(c)(6) organization.

Vendors include: ARK Floral, Berry Brook Farm, Breezie Maples Farm, Earthly Remedies, Hellers Farm, Middlefield Orchard, Mulligan Creek Acres, Simply Sweets, Stone & Thistle Farm, Tauzel Farms, You're So Sweet Baking Company.
