What’s fresh this week – June 30

Why are our farmers smiling?

Every Sunday farmers from across the Capital Region set up around Schenectady City Hall and welcome you into their stalls and into their lives as well. This past Sunday was one of the first perfect summer days: hot and sunny with no rain in sight. Farmers always smile when they get a day like that. Come rain or shine though, our farmers are happy to see you as you stroll through the market because they know their hard work throughout the week is going to turn into a delicious meal for you and your family – and that’s something we can all smile about.

Welcome to our new market manager!
