Happy Labor Day!
This weekend we recognize the contributions of American workers! As you walk around Schenectady Greenmarket this Sunday, you’ll notice the fruits of our vendors’ labor – literally! Bountiful produce, fresh baked goods, handmade crafts, prepared foods…all made possible by our farmers and vendors working hard to bring you the best that our area has to offer. Stop by and pick up everything you need for your Labor Day weekend celebrations – and don’t forget to thank your farmer!
What’s Fresh This Week
The Peanut Principle: Peanut ginger dressing; and a new fruit berry peanut butter with acai berry, pomegranate, cherries, strawberries, raspberry, blueberries, and goji berries.
