I was recently reminded of this expansive list of farmers markets (organized by county) throughout New York State by the NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets. You can find the winter markets here. In New York City, GrowNYC’s Greenmarket, Community Markets and Harvest Home are the Big 3. I’m excited about the growth of farmers markets in both urban and rural areas and its potential for both consumer education and increased profits for the producer.
If you are a farmer selling your products direct to the consumer, I highly suggest seeking the counsel of an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction as there are legal issues applicable to your situation that should be properly addressed.
