Many markets — including those in Rhinebeck, Pleasantville, Kingston, and Troy — offer a second act in winter. Local farms that grow produce year-round supply these venues with fresh winter crops such as leafy greens, root vegetables, and frozen vegetables and fruit. See below for some of our favorites:
AMENIA FARMERS MARKET
Every Saturday November-December; first & third Saturdays January-May, 10 a.m-2 p.m.
Amenia Town Hall, 4988 Rte. 22, Amenia. www.ameniafarmersmarket.com
Fresh baked goods; local milk, eggs, lamb and veal; pastas and cheeses, organic dog treats, and herbal soaps and teas.
