What’s Fresh This Week – December 2

Spend Your Sunday at Schenectady Greenmarket

It may be getting chilly outside, but inside Proctors, Schenectady Greenmarket is warm and welcoming – and it’s always the best place to find the freshest produce, meat, and prepared food. It’s also the place to pick up natural lotions and beauty products, handcrafted goods, and sweet treats for the holiday season. Bring your friends and your family; grab a cup of coffee, and shop around; you can enjoy local musicians in each of our three locations inside Proctors, grab a tasty lunch in our expanded food court area in Key Hall, and get your holiday shopping done – all in one place. Spend your Sunday at Schenectady Greenmarket!
