  • Everything was so fresh and crisp! It was a beautiful experience with an amazing community feel. Having the live musicians was an added bonus! Absolutely loved everything about it! Highly recommend  more »
  • We enjoy the laidback nature of this market. Always find things that we enjoy -snacks there and other items to take home for subsequent meals.  more »
  • Perfect downtown setting in pedestrian-only streetscape, lots of tantalizing tastes and smells from around the world and from all around eastern New York. Great music and intriguing shops line Jay St. too. If you're just passing through some Sunday, don't miss this Farmers Market for vegetables, fruit, honey, maple syrup, chocolate, pastries, coffees, mushrooms, local meats, pesto, artwork, locally produced peanut butter (two companies!) and tasteful crafts by local artisans
  • Beautiful! A moderate amount of vendors with a good variety of products. Live music- plus the bonus of being right off of Jay st.,Which has come so far in recent years. Bring some cash just to be safe but cards were accepted at many places.
