GREENWICH, N.Y. — Support local farmers and local farmland conservation. For the entire month of February the vendors of the Greenwich farmers’ market will be donating 10% of their market sales to the Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA).
The market is open Wednesdays from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and is located at 106 Main Street in the Village of Greenwich. There will be special events at each market and a chance to win a basket filled with local farm products.
The Greenwich Farmers’ Market is a four season market selling local food throughout the year. Vendors include Crandalls Corners Farm, Good Fence Farm, Harvest Basket Herbs, Joint Venture Farm and The Maple News Wood-Fired Maple Syrup. Products include vegetables, grassfed beef, herbal tea blends, cage free eggs, chicken, pork, and maple syrup.
The Agricultural Stewardship Association was founded in 1990 by farmers to protect agricultural land and ensure a future for farming in our region. To date, ASA has helped protect 17,160 acres on 110 properties in Washington and Rensselaer counties. For more information about ASA’s work, visit www.agstewardship.org.
