The rolling hillsides of Washington County are an incredible provider of everything from wine grapes to grass for cattle to graze on. While much about our region has changed, a commitment to agriculture remains, and you can’t see it any clearer than at our farmers markets!
As a largely agricultural community with incredibly rich soil, Washington County farmers grow a wide variety of crops and produce. Naturally, much of it can be found at our local farmers markets!
A mainstay of our close-knit communities, residents and visitors alike come from both near & far to pick up farm-fresh groceries from their local farmers market. With everything from spa products made out of beeswax or goat’s milk to a multitude of organically-fed meat options, these small-town community markets hold something for everyone.
Guarantee a great time & stop by one of Washington County’s farmers markets! There, you’ll hear live music from talented local musicians, sample food from a variety of vendors, and take home delicious fresh produce grown right here in the premier agricultural region of New York!
Plus, shopping at a farmers market is a great way to invest in the community and support the farmers who work so hard all year long!
SEASONAL / SUMMER FARMERS MARKETS
Thursdays 4 to 7 PM at 63 Canal Street in Fort Edward
This farmers market is more than just a place to shop for fresh produce and artisan products. The Canal Street Marketplace has an incredible history tied to its namesake: the canal system!
The newly restored marketplace building was actually moved to Fort Edward just after 1900. At that time, it was located in nearby Fort Ann, right in the way of an under-construction Champlain Barge Canal. The “barn” was removed and reconstructed in Fort Edward at the former Canal Wharf. There, it was used as a woodshop for the canal’s boats, buoys, and other equipment for the canal and locks until 1978.
Today, the building has been fully restored and acts as a community gathering place each week, with vendors, live music organized by Little Theater on the Farm & children’s programs presented by the Fort Edward Free Library.
Salem: Saturdays 10 AM to 1 PM at the Gazebo on Main Street in Salem
Whitehall: Tuesdays 2 to 5 PM at 58 Skenesborough Drive (Canal Park Pavillion) in Whitehall
Granville: Thursdays 2 to 5 PM at 88 Quaker Street (Mountview Commons) in Granville
Running north-south along the eastern side of Washington County and parallel to the Vermont border, Route 22 runs almost the length of the state, from the Bronx to Canada! Naturally, today’s Route 22 is quite historic.
Native Americans, and then the Dutch and other settlers, used this important rural route for travel, trade, and to get their farm products to market. In Washington County, the Route 22 Farmers’ Markets take place along this route in Salem, Granville, and Whitehall.
So check out this community staple! The Route 22 Farmers Market is a great place to stock up on fresh produce, meat and dairy products.
