This popular Hudson Valley Farmer’s Market is open year-round

Here we are, in the middle of February. Do you miss the heat, the sun, the flowers and the summer fruits? Yeah me too. But if you miss the local farmers’ markets, here’s some good news to pass on. There is a very popular Farmer’s Market here in the Hudson Valley that is open year round. Even in the middle of winter.

The Beacon Farmers Market is open year-round and is held every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Department of Motor Vehicles parking lot at 223 Main Street, right in the heart of Beacon. The Beacon Farmers Market ensures that fresh, affordable, locally produced food is available to the Beacon community throughout the year. And it’s big.

You’ll find approximately 50 vendors from across the Hudson Valley at Beacon Farmers Market, including farmers, bakers and dessert makers, beekeepers, distillers, local syrups and honey, local artisans and artists and even more. They also offer fun projects like making lanterns. Plus, you’ll no doubt meet friends and neighbors and experience a fun sense of community.

If you miss your weekly outings to the Farmer’s Market, head to Beacon one of those Sundays. It’s a great way to get some fresh air, eat fresh, local produce, have a little fun, and support local businesses. And let’s face it, Beacon is one of the coolest towns in the Hudson Valley, so there’s plenty to do before and after your visit to the Farmers’ Market.
